Back to Work

December 4th, 2011 by under Smith Life. No Comments.

I came to Smith with the same goal as the rest of my classmates – to find a great job after graduating. Turns out, I didn’t need to wait that long and for that I am both very lucky and somewhat melancholy.

Coming back to school is a tough choice for most anyone, but one of the greatest perks is the opportunity to get time away from the stress of work to invest some time in yourself. At Smith you start to takeĀ for grantedĀ the shorter days, the Friday’s off and overall easy-going atmosphere – until its time to get back to work. Well, its time for me to get back to work.

A few weeks ago my boss from my summer internship at Hilton told me she had decided to leave the company. She recommended me for the role and a few conversations later I was given an offer I simply couldn’t refuse – the opportunity to be Hilton’s senior director of business analytics. I truly was in the right place at the right time.

So while my classmates will be heading home to celebrate the holidays and take a month off to relax I’ll be heading back to work starting December 14th. I’ll be able to take part-time classes to graduate with my class, but I’ll certainly miss my time in College Park.
