Caitlin Murphy (SBI 2012, Villanova Class of 2014), received her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science in September 2013.
What was your favorite course in SBI and why?
Professional success – all of the courses added valuable insight to subjects in business, but I found the workshops, seminars, interview practice and networking events to be the most useful in my process of finding full-time employment.
What was the most helpful thing you learned in Professional success?
How to use GoNova – I’ve since gotten two internships and secured my full-time job following graduation through the GoNova career site.
How has your SBI experience helped you since graduating the program?
I’ve been able to leverage my business courses to acquire jobs/internships not only for the course material itself, but for showing that I was able to step outside of the comfort zone of my major (and college) and succeed in a challenging, fast-paced environment.
What have you been up to since graduating SBI?
I Graduated early in September 2013 and will walk with the 2014 class. I am currently working in Marketing and Operations for United Public Safety while studying for the GMATs. I am looking forward to joining the Goldman Sachs Operations Division in July 2014.
How would you sum up your SBI experience in one sentence?
SBI is a hectic, enlightening, challenging whirlwind of a summer that was wisely spent.
