“I got a lot of good responses from the agencies represented at the federal government job fair because of my finance background. They were looking for candidates who had a specific skill set to offer. They really wanted someone who had public finance skills and who could do the day-to-day work as opposed to someone who only studied theory. With the economy being the way it is, I was anticipating having a difficult time finding a job after graduation, but I was relieved and excited to find a position that allows me to do exactly what I want to do in my career. Rockefeller College prepared me well.”
