My business advisor recommended I attend a specific career fair, where I was able to connect with a hiring manager that led to my internship and a full-time position. This career fair was during class hours, so it required my advisor to go out of their way to excuse me from school in order to attend. I received a full-time offer, prior to graduation, and was able to customize my degree and flex my required courses schedule in order to start my career despite having one semester of classes remaining. I was thankful to have an advisor and professors that prioritized my future career over ease of scheduling or traditional class schedules.
Because of my education at Northwestern, I successfully passed the CPA exam after I graduated. And being surrounded by people who loved Jesus made me the passionate Christian businessman I am today. It was the best decision I have ever made.
