I am a sophomore both in the iSchool and Whitman. This past roadtrip was the second one that I’ve attended so far at my time here at Syracuse. I have to say for me, this recent road trip was incredible. Not only did it reassure me with what I want to do for the rest of my life, but it showed me how much the iSchool has helped me grow in the past year. On the road trip of Fall 2014, I didn’t know what networking was, I didn’t know how to talk to people, and I just overall felt uncomfortable. This could be due to the fact that I was just a freshman but this trip was a much better experience for me. My two favorite companies that we visited were JP Morgan Chase and EY. Both of these companies had a strong presence of SU Alumni that were excited to talk to us and give us their advice. They seemed excited and passionate about their jobs, which is what made me want to work for those companies even more. You could tell the companies wanted to talk to us and wanted us to ask questions. I’m personally very interested in working with financial and banking firms doing consulting so this road trip was extremely beneficial to me. I think students who we’rent interested in working in this industry still were able to get the feeling on how much companies are attracted to us and why the iSchool is so special.
