speaking to McDonough “ While upperclassmen during Hoya Saxa

weekend, I was extremely inspired by the school’s core curriculum. It allowed all students to take intro classes in nearly every major offered during their time as an undergraduate. Although I was already interested in pursuing marketing, taking courses in management, accounting, and more have made me a well rounded thinker as well as a more valuable asset in my internships.

Georgetown Alumni network is a “The great place to reach out. Hoyas are

always receptive and happy to help other Hoyas in any way they can. I have had great coffee chats with Hoyas at different firms to get a feel for their company and their internship offerings. Also, the Undergraduate Career Center organized a visit to the real estate investment company I interned for this past summer. I got the opportunity to speak with Hoyas at the firm and this ultimately led me to interning there my junior summer.

program was pivotal in helping me find my full-time role in the technology industry. I connected with a Georgetown alumnus for a chat, and he taught me so much about the industry, the types of non-technical roles available to business students, and the best practices for recruiting.
