Terry College of Business: May 2011

Associate Consultant at Microsoft

I cannot express enough gratitude towards my wonderful family and friends that have been with me throughout the years. They have been the foundation for my success by holding me through the hard times and never letting me settle for less than my best. Secondly, I would like to thank my mentors Mr. Scot Armstrong, Mr. Randy Groomes, and Collin Chung. These three gentlemen have guided me through my often challenging and difficult journey towards success. When I would be unsure of what to do next, these mentors would give me, without fail, the best advice anyone could give.

Next, I would like to thank the UGA MIS Department for giving me an incredible learning experience with endless opportunities in the organization, which allowed me to develop both my personal and professional goals in life. Finally, I would like to thank the Career Center, especially Ellen Sears and Laura Ledgerwood, for the time and effort that they invested in me. The Microsoft interview was by far the most challenging and thought-provoking interview that I have even been to. The five types of interviews I came across with Microsoft were situational, behavioral, technical, brain teasers, and case studies, and I was successfully prepared for the interviews because of Ellen and Laura. There are no such things as impossible dreams because they become reality when guided by passion.
