Life After College

March 13th, 2016 | Uncategorized

During my time at WIT, I have learned that it strives to give its students endless opportunities for life after college, especially in the business department. Whether you are an undergraduate student or graduate, the college is constantly bringing in various companies to give presentations about who they are and what they embody. This allows students to get a feel for what career field interests them the most and whom exactly they are applying for in terms of an internship placement or job position. Truthfully, I have learned more in-depth knowledge about companies that I haven’t even heard of before since I’ve been here at WIT, which will definitely help me with my application process as I hope to pursue a career in business in the future.


As a part of my Global Financial Information Systems masters program, I have to fulfill an internship after my finals in May for the summer or fall of 2016. Part of the reason I chose this course is because I can gain a hands-on, real life job experience with a business company instead of writing a dissertation. So this past week I attended a Work Placement Networking Business event for WIT students where Datapac, State Street, Ernest and Young, and Taxback all held informative presentations where we could also talk to the representatives and introduce ourselves afterwards.


The next following day, I signed up for my first-ever mock interview with State Street, a global financial company I applied to for an internship position. A little nervous at first, it went really, really well and delighted I signed up for it. Whether or not I get the position, only the future will know but overall the experience was fun and enlightening. For now, I am thankful to attend an academic institution that cares so much about their students’ success. Go WIT!
