Why Researching a Company Helps You Find the Right Job

love job

"Experienced professionals know that learning about an organization allows you to talk about your skills in relation to their needs and ask insightful questions that show you've done your homework. But there's an equally good, less mentioned reason to dig deep into the company's background. And that reason is job satisfaction. It's how you'll discover if that job is the right one."

Alum: Corie Dumdie Barry, '97 ACCT and MGMT Major
Chief Strategic Growth Officer
Best Buy Co., Inc. 

"A piece of advice I have is to seek out risk and challenge. Of the many roles I have had at Best Buy, very few of them existed before I walked into them. I think it's important to take on new challenges and really stretch yourself. You're capable of more than you give yourself credit for, but you'll never know if you don't try. You really need to get out there and look for some areas in which you can make a difference and then ASK for a shot."

Intern: Richie Podvin, '16 POLS Major

"Some of the highlights of the internship were the field experience to Minnesota Correctional Facility (MCF) Lino Lakes and MCF Shakopee, being able to sit through and watch a first-degree murder trial from jury selection through sentencing, and visiting the Tri-County Regional Forensic Lab in Andover, MN."
