Class of 2009
Major: Business Management and Communication
Steve decided to obtain an internship in order to gain experience before graduation and to have a job opportunity after graduation.
During his three-month internship with Sherwin Williams as an Operations Manager he ran the day-to-day operations and made sure the customers were satisfied. During one of the career fairs, Steve learned about a position open at Boeing. After being offered an interview, he did extensive research on the company by looking at current events, financial reports and competitors. He was offered a job at Boeing as a project manager upon graduation!
Steve feels his internship experience helped him prepare for the job market and gave him an upper hand over a lot of other applicants. His background in his major, as well as participation in sports and community-help programs, also made him a candidate for the Boeing job.
