What was the most important thing(s) you learned in BA 101 to help you get where you are today?
The power of a good resume as well as how to prep and interact with recruiters.
What BBA Career Services resources did you use and how did you utilize these resources to get where you are today?
Mock interviews were probably one of my favorite elements, practice makes perfect and having the opportunity to “fake” interview and get valuable feedback was great.
How did you make your final choice to accept your job offer?
Main reason was that I had interned with Dell my Junior summer and was offered a position on that same team. Really enjoyed my internship experience and I knew that the team was great. Second was the pay… lets be honest that counts, I compared all my offers and Dell had really competitive pay compared to a couple others. And l lastly, I majored in supply chain management and the Dell supply chain is known worldwide for its CTO modeled supply chain.

Network, network, network! My GPA was not great but I managed to get internships at AMD (sophomore summer) and Dell(Junior summer)! I continue to network at Dell, and got my transfer to Singapore partly due to knowing the right people.
