The number one question potential recruits ask is “Why join PSE?” I took the time to sit down with some of the newest members of PSE to answer just that.
Mari Cabiladas a 3rd year Marketing and Consumer Economics major transferred to UGA last semester when she joined PSE. “PSE really made the transfer smoother,” mentions Mari, “I got the chance to meet so many like-minded, career oriented peers who really helped me ease into UGA.” When I asked why she joined, Mari responded “It really gave me a chance to make friends while also perfecting my professional skills, I would highly recommend giving this organization a chance.”
Like Mari, Robert Li a 2nd year Computer Science major joined PSE last semester. As a new member, he won the Regionals Sales Competition in Raleigh, NC with almost no prior knowledge in Sales. He describes Regionals as “one of his best memories of PSE.” When I asked him what he loved most about PSE he said “The people. I feel like I had a family the second I went to my first meeting.” When I questioned him about the professional benefits he stated “ I learned how to stand out from your average applicant. Now thanks to PSE I was able to land an interview with IBM.”
Similar to Robert, Randi King a 2nd year Finance Major got a job opportunity because of PSE. Like the other new members, Randi believes “PSE is what you make of it.” Randi was named Rookie of the Year and Top Gold member last semester for her amazing contributions and participation in PSE. When asked for a favorite memory in PSE, Randi recalls “The moment that I decided to go to the career fair, they kept mentioning it so much in meetings that I figured I should at least get my foot in the door.” The professional workshops and resume reviews she said “were a big part of how I got my current internship with Equifax.”
The funny thing is that none of these experiences are rare. PSE welcomes all majors and gives all students opportunities for success both professionally and socially. We are always looking for more people to join one of the best business fraternities in the nation, so if you’re interested take a leap and apply below!
