Coming into Saint Peter’s University as a freshman, I knew that I wanted to be in the field of Financial Services. Saint Peter’s University’s proximity to the financial center of the world, New York City, presents limitless opportunities to its students. The hands-on education and the professors who have professional experience in their respective fields helped us gain insight and knowledge of the business world.

However, the opportunities are not just handed to you. You have to know what you want to do and you have to work hard to reach your goals. The great news is that there are people and resources at the university who will help you achieve these goals. The Cooperative Education and Internship Program and the Office of Career Services are extremely helpful resources that will prepare you to be a qualified candidate. They teach you everything from how to dress up for an interview to how to sell yourself for that dream job.

The resume workshops, interview workshops, career fairs, and the alumni connections have been incredibly helpful. As a result of the mentorship, advice, and the constant preparation given by Dr. Peter Gotlieb and Mr. Enzo Fonzo; I am working as an analyst at a professional financial asset management firm in New York City. One advice to give my peers, it’s never too early to start meeting these wonderful people and utilizing the resources they provide. I will never forget the day when I entered Henneberry Hall as a naive freshman to attend a resume workshop. They welcomed me with open arms, they will do the same for you.
