Five Questions with a student...


1. What is your academic rundown? I am a Management major with a Human Capital concentration. I have minors in Legal Environment of Business, Labor and Employment Relations, and Sociology.

2. What do you wish you knew earlier in your academic career, that you know now? Failure and challenging yourself can be a good thing. Instead of viewing failure as a failure you can learn a lot more from it if you take it as a learning experience and use it in interviews as a show of character. It can show others your resilience and how you deal with unexpected situations and stress. As cheesy as it may sound, things happen for a reason, and just because you didn't get a certain position or do well in a certain class, maybe it's because you should be doing something else. Just keep looking and trying your best. 

3. What advice do you have for talking about the management major with recruiters? Expand your horizons and find things that will help recruiters understand a management education. For example, employment law and labor and employment relations are a huge part of the management major, so by supporting my management degree with minors in those fields it helps recruiters understand what I know and am passionate about. This can also be done through clubs and other commitments that show similar interests or different interests that expand your skills and education. 

4. What are your plans after graduating from Penn State? After graduation in May, I will be moving to Washington D.C. to work for PwC as a Management Consulting Associate in their People and Organization practice. 

5. What are you most looking forward to this winter break? I am looking forward to lots of baking, as well as being able to give gifts and celebrate the season with my family and friends (safely, of course)!
