"Be open minded, try new things, and get involved. My biggest take always from undergrad came from experiences outside of the classroom – internships, study abroad, undergraduate research. "
What was your major/minor at Purdue and when did you graduate?
I majored in Neurobiology and Physiology with a minor in Anthropology and graduated May 2013. I also received a master's degree in Global Entrepreneurship in May 2014.
Did you pursue internships/co-ops, research experiences, volunteer, or join student organizations while you attended Purdue?
Yes! All of the above. Specifically, my lab/research experience definitely helped me stand out when applying for my current position; in the interview my current supervisor asked about my undergraduate research and was impressed with my experience.
What were you most afraid of when you were about to graduate? What advice would you give students who may have similar fears?
The fear of the unknown – what happens next? Utilize the CCO – they really helped me strengthen my resume, prepare for job interviews, and find opportunities.
