Daniela Echeverri, B.S. in Economics, Class of 2019, says, “Career Services was a huge help! I applied for an internship at Shell after several meetings with a career development specialist. She helped me set goals for my college career after I transferred into the business school, coached me on types of internships I should apply for, assisted in resume tailoring, and even coached me in practice interview sessions. I accepted a job offer at Shell, and I’ll be moving to Houston to work as a contracting and procurement analyst.”
