Graduate degree(s): I would eventually like to get a graduate degree. My company will pay for it, but the reality is that I would get it for myself to prove I can do it. I really regretted not doing it a couple years after getting my job at 3M while college was still fresh
Favorite class(es): "The rise and fall of the Roman Empire" - It was simply fascinating
Started out in Computer Science, decided after 2 years (and after passing all of the engineer weed-out courses!) that life as a programmer wasn't for me. I loved programming, but wanted a job more closely tied to the needs of business so I transferred to the college of business. I had an extra semesters worth of credits that went unused towards my major, but it was worth it in the long run.
Moving from college to career:
I was hired into 3M as a result of attending the College of Business career fairs, networking with companies, and keeping in close contact with the career counselors/advisors in the College of Business to be ensured I was well marketed. I landed 4 job offers, including one from my internship. My job was secured a semester before I graduated so it's safe to say my choice of undergraduate degree helped significantly. I graduated on a Wednesday, found an apartment and was at work the following Monday.
I have been a technology nut all my life and get excited about advancements in technology and how they can enable businesses and companies be more efficient and productive. I have always had a passion for Information Technology (IT) and once I got to College, specifically after doing my internships, I realized how I could turn that passion into a career.
