I am hoping to use my experience as student, Graduate Assistant and a beneficiary of the Leadership and Professional Development Program (LAPDP) to give real life and practical examples of how the LAPDP can help student’s careers.
My Experience as a Student
In the fall semester of 2010 I transferred from Pitt Community College to East Carolina University as a junior. I had the opportunity to participate in 3 of the 4 LAPDP courses and learned firsthand from business professionals that teach the courses now.
My Experience as a Graduate Assistant
In the fall semester of 2012 I started the Masters of Science in Accounting (MSA) at East Carolina University and have worked for the BUSI 2200 and BUSI 3200 classes.
My Experience as a Beneficiary
Between attending Undergraduate and Graduate School, I worked as an intern at Ernest and Young. Using the LAPDP helped me not only get the internship, but to work with teams to successfully complete the internship.
