What do you love about the Rawls College of Business?
I love the resources the Rawls offers its students in order to mold us into the next generation of business professionals. Whether it’s the Snyder Communication Skills Center, networking events, etiquette dinners, mock interviews, or resume workshops—there are limitless opportunities for Rawls students to be prepared for the job market, and I believe our placement rates portray this.
Why did you decide to be a Rawls Ambassador?
I transferred into the Rawls College of Business as a former biology major, and with the help of my advisor and Career Management Center, I managed to transition into a business student and even landed my first internship the following semester! This gave me a rush of pride that grew into a desire to give back and represent this amazing college and being a Rawls Ambassador was the perfect fit.
Do you have any advice for new students coming into the Rawls College of Business?
Take advantage of every resource the Rawls offers because it will only make you better prepared for the real world. Also: network, network, network! Be friendly and willing to meet your fellow Rawls students because you never know when you could use their hand in school or in the future as alumni.
