DCP Career Fair


(Christian Franco) When I came to the career fair, I showed up early. I showed up so early that the organizers asked me what company I was with because every was just setting up. And I i said “No, I’m a student.” They said “Oh your student so you’re gonna have to wait outside.” And a gentleman that was standing behind me patted me on the shoulder and said “That’s you get for coming up early big boy.” And that is Mr. Rob Willits, the one who I had first an interview with and that’s when we started a great conversation and hence who I’m working with today. The pool of knowledge that was offered at the University of Florida was was something that I definitely had to take advantage and I did. I took advantage of all of it. I tried to soak up as much as I could. One of the most interesting things of the program was the wide network of interactions, with not only professionals within the university, but outside of the university. So I had that advantage to see more or less I have a small glimpse of how the real world was, how the field was and how professionals actually did their job. So I’ve had a great opportunity to interact with a lot of interesting people and to get, almost immediately, a global view of the field. I came to the Career Fair last year and this year, after being with Ashton Woods, I’m back again but now on the other side of the table. I’m getting ready talk with some really interesting students. Not only is the interview process in the Career Fair enlightening to obtain a job but it’s also great to pick the minds of the people that are here. They will give you information about what their firm does that you can’t find on a website or brochure. I would say that the most important thing to to consider is will i have another opportunity like this? I would have to say that I was very lucky to to land in a place where i can see myself for a long time. Music
