  • Marketing with Communications Minor
    If I could do my blog full time after I graduate, that would be ideal. I love writing and it’s my favorite platform to express myself. I can write whatever I want and share my opinion about things. And being a marketing major I’ve realized that companies having blogs is such a crucial tool to...

  • Master’s of Science in Accounting
    I transferred here my freshmen year. I had no clue what I wanted to do, and kind of blew it my freshman year. But during my time at Paul I got more involved in the college. I found mentorship all around me, and I started to shift gears dramatically. I went from someone with no work ethic or desire...

  • Economics and Finance Double Major
    I honestly expected to be worked to the bone, not respected, and not trusted. It’s the way I’ve heard big bank culture is. But I was immediately proven wrong. The team was extremely welcoming to me on the first day, we would go out together after work on occasion, and I had way more face time with...

  • Finance Major with a Sales Minor
    I just closed my first six-figure deal working full-time, and also being a full-time student. I wake up, go to work from 8:30 to 1, come back, go to my class at 2:10, then work again until 5 and am on call until 7. When I was offered the job before my senior year, it was a pleasant surprise. I wasn...

  • Marketing Major with a Minor in Sales
    It was awkward. I called a prospect and as we got to chatting and I began my pitch, he cut in and said ‘I’m actually no longer with the company.’ I got the impression he had been laid off. He was one of my top prospects and I didn’t know where to go with it anymore. A couple weeks later, I saw that...
