Rachel Wesley, '13, Computer Science, Front End Engineer at Brand Networks
Rachel Wesley considered several opportunities this spring before accepting a position as a front end engineer at local social marketing firm Brand Networks.
She said she initially found out about the company through her faculty advisor. "I talked to my department chair (Marty Guenther) about job opportunities," says Wesley, who graduated with her bachelor's degree in computer science in May. "She mentioned Brand Networks and I saw that they were going to be at the Career Fair."
Wesley says she approached the recruiter at Career Fair, and, "Everything fell into place from there."
She recommends current students and recent grads network within their academic departments. "Talk to people in your department who know you and know what companies would fit your interests and personality," she says.
