October 1 & 2 of 2015 I attended the iSchool Road Trip where we visited various consulting and finance firms in NYC. These two days were jam packed with visit after visit to firms like Deloitte, KPMG, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, EY, etc. For me this trip was a great combination between old and new. Prior to Syracuse University I was a Business major at Florida Southern College, but never in my life did I imagine an opportunity in front of me to work at one of these big name firms. With the iSchool’s reputation we were treated like VIPs on this trip and we were strongly encouraged by each firm to apply to internship opportunities. After hearing about what each company had to say I felt that it would be a great way to integrate the new knowledge that I am gaining here at Syracuse with the old knowledge from Florida by working at one of these firms. Never in my life was I even interested in working at a firm… So that was a very big change. I walked away from this trip with a lot of new found knowledge, motivation, and confidence in the path that I am taking. I would highly recommend any student to attend one of these road trips for networking practice (we had abundant opportunities to do so), and to explore career paths because it is almost like shadowing. All in all, this trip was very exhausting, but it opened my eyes to a new perspective on my career path.
