Big ideas, practical applications, and a few gentle nudges

Beloit’s student-centric culture, broad liberal arts focus, and strategic nudges from mentors helped Karla Magana Figueroa’13 get the most of out of her Beloit education. While everyone may not immediately connect a liberal arts education with a career in corporate America, she’s found it to be a perfect fit for the wide-ranging projects she’s worked on as a consultant, first for IBM, then for Ernst & Young.

Garrett Cornelius Moore’20 Intern at Bank of America Merrill Lynch

“This summer, I had the pleasure of interning at Bank of America Merrill Lynch within the Wealth Management division. The biggest takeaway from my internship this summer is networking can have the most positive impact on your career, right next to hard work. Leveraging your connections and relationships opens so many doors. Also, before this internship, I never understood how important having a work-life is because if you aren’t enjoying your work, you become less productive.”
