A successful career strategy requires more than mastering your discipline. It also requires the "soft skills" that employers value - professionalism, communication skills, and vision.
Take the time to become the professional you want to be – what we call #IrishReady.
What excites you about your new position?
The position will allow me to implement many of the entrepreneurial skills that I gained at Notre Dame in a corporate environment. I am excited to be responsible for my own category of products and provide customers with items that can turn a house into a home.

Looking back on your job search experience, what advice would you give to current students?
Put yourself out there. Never be too afraid to reach out to ND alumni, grab coffee with a professor on campus, or hop on the phone with strangers you reached out to on LinkedIn. I did all of these and they helped me sift through various job opportunities and ultimately make the decision to move to Omaha to pursue a career with a well known e-commerce company.
