What internships did you have during college?
Campbell Soup Company & Luxury Garage Sale
Please tell us about your career path post-graduation. What is is your current job title?
I was fortunate to hop right into the workforce upon graduation at Walgreens as a Space Management Analyst for their Hair Care Department.
What advice do you have for DePaul students in choosing/interviewing for internships?
Don't be afraid to move cities- you'll learn a lot about yourself. Pick a company you believe you can grow within.
If you had a minor/concentration or took classes within the Sales Leadership program, how did they prepare you for your career?
MKT 377 with Clancy taught me how to market myself and really be a go-getter. All of the JBP's (joint business planning) within the Cat Man program have excelled me to the position I am at today. Without the incredible teachers such as Geoff, always pushing and motivating me, I don't think I would be the person I am today.
What is the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Ask your future employer what you need to do to work for them. Don't be afraid to ask the hard questions
