THE JONES SCHOOL CMC WAS CRITICAL

IN PROVIDING INFORMATION

AND SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE NSHMBA CONFERENCE. THIS WEEKEND EVENT WAS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH RECRUITERS EARLY IN THE YEAR. IT ALSO GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO NETWORK WITH A VARIETY OF ORGANIZATIONS FROM DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES ALL IN ONE PLACE. I WAS LUCKY TO INTERVIEW WITH SEVERAL COMPANIES, AND I RECEIVED OFFERS FROM GM AND INTEL, IN ADDITION TO FORD.
