In the fall semester I had the opportunity, through a great program called “Mentored to Success”, to meet a Penn State alum working in the field that I want to and ask them questions. Questions ranging from how they got to where they are today, to how do I make my resume stand out. It’s a great opportunity for students to learn how to network and get an inside scoop as to what its like working in the field that they are studying for.
Last week I had the chance to go to the business that my alum was the V.P. of Marketing for. The company is called ModSpace and they build high end modulars for schools, businesses, and even hospitals. It was so much fun to see what it was like in a big business and to be in a big business setting. I was able to attend staff meetings, a sales pitch, as well as a product placement meeting.
It was all so interesting and so much fun to see what it’s like in the “real world.” I’m graduating in the Spring and I just can not wait to go to a 9-5 job and start my career.
