Kant Khatri – Senior, Actuarial Science

“The best advice I can give is get involved, and get involved in depth versus breadth. A lot of people try to get involved in a lot of activities – and that’s good, to test the waters – but by the time your sophomore year rolls around, get involved in one particular club and take on a leadership role because that’s where you form the connections and community that will help you in the future.”

Stephen Simmons – Sophomore, Risk Management

“Temple is a very good school for a really good price. That was a big influence in my decision. I felt you got the most value for what you’re spending. I wanted a large, urban school. Temple definitely fits the build. I also like how Temple prepares you for being a business professional outside of just a classroom.”

Jeniffer Singley – BBA Alumni 2013, Marketing

 “I learned a lot in both of my internship experiences. My first, with the Philadelphia Flyers, helped me determine that I may not, as I had previously thought, want to go into sports marketing. And then when I started interning at United By Blue, I realized I wanted a job with more meaning besides just selling or marketing a product.”

Alexandra Rutt - Junior, Marketing

"A really amazing experience for me was the first Marketing and Supply Chain Management Department event I went to. It was a networking event and it was my first time meeting actual employers. I was so nervous, but once you get into the groove of it you realize they can teach you so much. I was asked for an interview for a summer internship at Burlington at that event. Networking isn’t that difficult; everyone’s really nice. You just have to be confident. And that’s how I set up my entire summer from that – going to that event for 20 minutes."

The Power of Networking
