During Me Inc., a week long workshop that helps students establish their personal brands, 2nd year students and Graduate Career Service (GCS) coaches helped me understand and verbalize the clear parallels between my Army experiences and the skills needed for success in the private sector. Members of the Kelley Veterans Club have consistently provided feedback on my resume and offered advice for succeeding in an interview. As a result, when interacting with various companies at networking events I feel confident in articulating the value I can add to each firm.
Ultimately, the Kelley School values the same principles that were important to me in the Army: integrity, teamwork, innovation, and leadership. The transition to Kelley has been very natural, and I remain confident that my career's trajectory will be due in no small part the lessons Kelley has taught me about effectively leveraging my background as a veteran.
