What was the most important thing(s) you learned in BA 101 to help you get where you are today?

I distinctly remember one exercise where we had to call someone in a field we were interested in to ask them questions. Asking questions is so important! It helped me figure out what I think I would like vs. what I actually like, and that level of candor is appreciated in the work force.

What BBA Career Services resources did you use and how did you utilize these resources to get where you are today?

My career advisor and various tools on the BBA Career Services website. Research, research, and research goes a long way. Reach out to your advisors and professors with questions and build your network.

How did you make your final choice to accept your job offer?

It was all about the people that I had met throughout the interview process that really pushed me to accept my offer – I remember looking around after the interviews thinking, ‘I’d have lunch with any of these interviewers with no hesitation.’

Give us your best career advice.

Be self-aware, research, and ask questions! It’s the most rewarding way to find out what’s best for you and the effort you put in is what you’ll receive in return.
