"Looking back I am thankful for the department's commitment to preparing me for the workforce. The faculty's connections with employers was highly beneficial as they kept current on important job skills and incorporated them into their lessons. Additionally, I got several opportunities to work on experiential learning projects. This not only gave me exposure to the work environment but also allowed me to showcase my skills and network with potential employers." John Beltrone (Accounting)
