What do you like most about the Krannert School and Purdue?
"What I enjoy most about both Krannert and Purdue is the fact that it is so easy to meet people. People have always told me networking is an essential tool to succeed, and here at Purdue it is made easy. With all the different clubs and work opportunities, you will have countless ways to socialize and network."
Why should a prospective student choose the Krannert School?
"The Krannert School of Management creates such a great environment to not only succeed, but to get to know all the people you will encounter. From day one, you will be introduced to tons of new friends and given the chance to get involved as much as you would like to. Classes are taught at an elevated academic level with high expectations from students, but at the same time you will be given even more assistance and guidance."
What extracurricular activities do you participate in at Purdue?
"I am currently a member of the research and development committee for the School of Management Employers Forum (SMEF), serve as an intern for the Purdue Student Government, and work at the Boiler Junction inside the glorious Tarkington Hall. I plan to pledge Delta Sigma Pi later on this semester as well."
How have you been assisted in your job search?
"Along with all the help, such as resume critiques, mock interviews, and even finding job listing though the Center of Career Opportunities, I have been attending both the Industrial Roundtable and both SMEF career fairs. I could not ask for more help finding internship opportunities, and I am glad both Purdue and Krannert are able to offer these services."
Who is the person, business world or otherwise, that you most admire, and why?
"The person I most admire is here at Purdue University. He is the Director of Diversity Initiatives here in Krannert and his name is Darren Henry. He spends every minute of every day trying to find a way to help out the students who reach out to him. He is the single most unselfish person I have ever met, and admire his work ethic to help us out. I am very thankful he is here at Krannert and glad to have met him to have him as a mentor."
When we catch up with you in 10 years, what do you expect to be doing?
"Ten years from today I hope to be three years out of a prestigious law school, with an excellent job involving corporate law within a Fortune 200 company. Hopefully I'll be lucky enough to have money to travel as much as I can and enjoy time with the family. Someday, I hope to become the CEO of a Fortune 100 company."
Away from Krannert...what do you do for fun?
"When I am not in Krannert busting my brain studying for classes, I enjoy playing sports such as racquetball, soccer, golf, and tennis. I also enjoy being with my friends and enjoying the time off relaxing. Getting involved with community service organizations is something I find fun, especially with opportunities to meet new people and go to new places."
