How did your Busch School and Catholic University education help you find this career path?

I ended up having five different internships at my time here, starting my second semester of freshman year and now i have this job. Through my marketing classes (particularly personal selling with Professor Pin), the help of my other professors, and the confidence in my leadership I’ve gained through going to Catholic University, I was able to use those skills to find the job I have at CommScope."

I’ll never forget my time here."
