School of Business and Leadership,
CS Data Group, Chemtool Incorporated
What do you do in your current job and what do you enjoy about it?
I process purchase orders, batch entries, printing bills and shipping labels and confirm shipments while working with the production team to ensure a smooth process from start to finish in fulfilling orders.
How did your Judson experience influence you professionally? What were your favorite parts of being a Judson student?
By learning excellent time management skills through taking multiple classes each semester I am now able to successfully prioritize my tasks at work and accomplish them successfully. Also, through the opportunity to work on campus in the Advancement Office I was able to understand office environments very well, which has aided my current position. Business Communication was BY FAR my favorite course. Professor Kruser prepared her class extremely well to encounter any and all sorts of business experiences with ease and tact. Memorization skills I perfected at Judson have helped me quite a bit at my current job, too.
What are the strengths of your major/program at Judson?
The caring support of teachers in the School of Business and Leadership was their greatest strength. I would have liked to have seen more hands-on, real world work like internships or case study sort of projects incorporated to the curriculum to help gain some additional experience to include on a resume.
What advice can you give to current and prospective students about their time at Judson?
Cherish your time at Judson. Life becomes far more difficult and challenging after graduation. No one is providing you with a cafeteria to eat at, financial security of not having utilities/rent/bills/groceries to deal with, the camaraderie of being with your friends 24/7 or the ease of only having class and homework to deal with on a day-to-day basis, not to mention the bonus of having numerous days off and breaks throughout each semester! Some may complain about their college years being SO difficult in the midst of finals and a few all-nighters, but in hindsight it was nothing!
