How would you sum up Summer 2015 in three words?Work. Work. Netflix.
What do you think was the most important thing you learned from your internship at VWR? I was an audit intern where I gained a deeper understanding of the auditing process and its importance in business. Furthermore, I learned why this field is a great way to begin my professional career.
What advice would you give to students in search of an internship throughout the upcoming school year? Be ready to get rejected and be ok with it. I applied to over 100 internships and received one offer. Everyone searching for an internship should realize that the business world is not always a pure meritocracy. You may have to utilize any connections you have in your desired field.
What is your most memorable moment at Scranton?Overtime win in the C League basketball championship my freshman year; the pinnacle of my college athletic career.
Who/What has had the biggest influence on you at the U? Father Rick
Now that senior year is right around the corner what is the one thing you are most excited for? I am definitely excited to get a job, hopefully. We’ll see how it goes.
If you could go back to freshman year of college and change one thing what would it be? I would probably want to change getting a career ending concussion in football. However, I transferred to Scranton afterwards which was one of the best choices I ever made. So, I guess I don’t have much to complain about.
What is something you want to accomplish by the time you turn 25 and why? I hope to eat the Tony Luke’s Ultimate Cheesesteak because why not?
