For Grant Pollack, checking his Daniels Careers account paid off. There he found job postings—which ultimately led him to his job with Key Bank. Grant also received crucial assistance from Daniels Career Services through his personal meetings with his career counselor, Patty Hickman. Patty was very helpful in performing a mock interview with questions catered to the specific job he ended up accepting.

“My advice to other students is to start the process as early as possible! Looking back, I would have started prospecting target companies during the summer going into my senior year.
