Spring 2017 Winner - Fioralba Leka
Hello Business Bulls! I am Fioralba from Albania. During my time at USF, I was involved in various organizations and networking opportunities that helped me develop personally and professionally.
How did I land a job?
Throughout my time at USF, I participated in a variety of networking events geared towards finding a job. Eventually, I applied for a job at Deloitte and was called in for an interview. I made an appointment at the Collier Student Success Center right away. At the center, I perfected my resume and participated in a mock interview in where I was asked every question an employer might ask. With the help of the Collier Student Success Center staff, I was confident during the Deloitte interview, and was able to quickly remember relevant experiences that showcased my skills.
Thankfully, all of my hard work at USF has paid off, and I landed the job!
Recommendation/Key to success:
- Imagine yourself as a well rounded and successful individual.
- Do something everyday, no matter how small, to become the person you envision.
- Invest in yourself! Dedicate resources to self development such as; join an organization, learn a new language, exercise, and use the resources provided by the Collier Student Success Center.
- Don't wait until you have achieved your goal to be proud of yourself! Be proud of every step you take that brings you closer to your goals.
- Don't just be good at what you do, be EXCEPTIONAL.
- Take every opportunity presented in order to help yourself grow.
- NEVER give up. I believe that what you haven't achieved in years can be achieved in minutes or even seconds. Be persistent and find a way, even when there seems to be none.
