Senior Success Stories 2013

From full-time jobs and post-baccalaureate internships to graduate school and service positions, our graduating seniors are finding success around the world.

Read their stories below for inspiration and tips on your own search, and contact Kerrie Merz to share your story.

Jason Silverstein, a double major in English and Anthropology, has been accepted into the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism where he will begin a Master of Science program this fall.  He will spend the summer working for the Buffalo News as a full-time features reporter.

Annalise Baird, English, will be moving to California in July to complete a competitive fellowship with the Development Department at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.  Her participation in the Career Center Boot Camp this year helped her focus her goals and pursue this opportunity. She also attributes her success to the invaluable experience gained through the UR International Theatre Program and The Opposite of People (TOOP).

Financial Economics major Dan Shapiro has landed a prestigious position with Oppenheimer & Co., a leading boutique investment bank this summer. He will be working as an Equity Research Intern in the Oil & Gas sector. The analysts that he will be working for are two of the most frequently quoted experts on energy issues. He cites undergrad finance experience as a key to his success.

Emily Vreeland, Public Health-Health Policy, recently accepted a position with RTI International working on their health policy projects in the aging, disability, and long-term care program.  She has deferred her admission to University of North Carolina Gillings School of Public Health in order to gain some practical experience in her field.
