My friend got into the publishing industry and called me up with a job opening that he thought I would be a great fit for. With his recommendation, I applied for the position, went through the interview process, and landed my first job!”
What organizations were you involved in at OHIO?

What is your favorite place in Athens, Ohio?
“Although I spent a bulk of my time outside of Copeland at Courtside Pizza, I’d say my favorite part of being in Athens was strolling through College Green. It’s an incredible feeling to walk through the College Gate. It always provided affirmation that Athens and OHIO provided the best possible college life and experience.”
What advice that you would give to a current #BusinessBobcat?
“There were two things I valued most from the College of Business. The first was the hands-on application and real life experiences that the faculty provided. Looking back, whether it was in the cluster or a capstone marketing course, there were always incredible learning opportunities that you knew you could apply in the future. The second would be the network that is present in the College. Don’t overlook your classmates. When you work in team environments during class, be sure to grow those relationships because you never know when those will pay off.”
