"When employers looked at my resume and saw that I had experience running a successful business, while involved with school and my various activities, I was able to garner a lot of initial attention. This ability to get my foot in multiple doors and then develop many relationships was a cornerstone in giving me a wide array of options to choose from before I had decided what I had wanted to do. Upon graduation, and when I had figured out what I wanted to do, I was able to use that relationship building to secure the job I wanted. My main takeaway my employer told me is that having the experience I had, even if it wasn't accounting only, was important because it showed that I was a worthwhile investment and someone they could see move up in the company and be a leader, which is exactly what College Works helped to give me. College Works continues to impact my mindset in all functions of my career I have had by helping me keep a big picture, managerial mindset."
