"Graduating in 2009 wasn't the best time for a recent MBA to find a job. However, my participation as Vice President of GPSG set me apart from other candidates for the few openings that were available. I ended up with multiple offers and was able to pick the position that best suited me. Since then, I've been able to leverage my GPSG experience with budgeting, leading a team, and project management into multiple promotions. I'm eternally thankful to GPSG for jump-starting my career, not to mention the lifetime friendships and connections I gained."
