Franklin College of Arts & Sciences: May 2011

Administration Assistant at Troutman Sanders LLP

During the spring semester of my senior year, I was in a panic. What was I going to do after graduation on May 16?! I was checking DAWGlink “religiously” and DAWGlink is exactly what came through for me. I saw the post at Troutman Sanders LLP, an international law firm with more than 650 lawyers and 16 offices worldwide, for an Administrative Assistant role. I instantly applied by sending my resume (which I had critiqued at the Career Center, too!) through DAWGlink. Within days, I received a call to set up an interview. I went to two separate interviews and then, on graduation day, I received the call that I got the job. It was perfect!! I began my new job on May 31 and I love it. This is a great stepping stone in my career path. Thank you, UGA Career Center, for helping me land my first job!
