Attending the NYC trip is currently the best college choice I have made. As a freshmen, I was very afraid of what to expect. In the beginning, I thought the trip was just a “fun, school” trip. However, my view immediately changed after Julie emailed me that I have to dress professionally. In addition, I was more intimated when Julie requested my resume, which I had never written. But as our group arrived at the companies, with the help of Julie and Prof. Rubin, I gained the confident to talk with the employees of the companies, asked them many questions, and made important connections. I even personally gave my resume to one of employee at JP Morgan – I learned the proper way of communicating with employers and giving my resume at the proper time. Above all, I have seemed the influence and the status of the iSchool. Many of the high executives of the companies really respected the iSchool and really encouraged all of us to work at their companies in the future. To be honest, I really wanted to transfer out SU after two years. But after this trip, I no longer have interest to transfer and want to finish my four-year college degree at the iSchool.
