Determining his own success
I am a Financial Representative with Prudential and a second year MBA student concentrating in Operations Management. I was most inspired by Professor Caltagirone in the Operations Management Department to begin my recent career search. Although my career as a financial representative does not directly relate to what Professor Caltagirone taught, the skills of self-discipline, leadership and teamwork I learned in his supply chain capstone course definitely helped me get to where I belong today at Prudential.
I have had a burning desire to become a financial representative since I was young. In high school I interned for a financial advisor and it inspired me to want to be a part of the community, make it a better place and ultimately it was an appealing career path because I saw it as a career path that allowed me to determine my own success. I knew a career in the community where I could put my financial skills to good use was what I was meant to do. Without the advisor who guided me into this field and the excellent faculty at Loyola such as Professor Caltagirone, I would not have been able to obtain my dream job. I am so thankful for the experiences those individuals afforded me and I am definitely thankful for all the time and effort Sara and Julie at Business Career Services put into my career search!
