Connections yield internship, then job in HR

Connections are everything according to Stephanie Whitecross '17.  "Dr. Hagadorn in the Business Department was a large reason for me securing an internship at Carilion Clinic," Whitecross said. There, she got to experience what it's like to be a part of a large organization and develop workplace skills. "If it wasn't for my internship, I might not have gotten the chance to know the Vice President of Human Resources."

"When the HR department created the role of Workplace Culture Specialist, they called me to ask if I would be interested in applying." After interviewing, Whitecross accepted the position in March of her senior year.
