Class of 2013, Electrical Engineering
I got an opportunity to meet the Exelon recruiting team in a Career day held at Morgan State. I went prepared to company's designated kiosk and made an instant connection with the Exelon representative. After an on-site interview, I was offered a full-time position of Business Analyst. The best part of my career at Exelon is that I have a lot of opportunity to grow. One of Exelon's priorities is to invest in Employee development. There are various opportunities to learn and gain experience in the company. Since Exelon is a big company, it gives you an opportunity to find what you are really passionate about and carve your career accordingly. There is always a positive energy and great environment to work. My experience at Morgan prepared me for my career. Going to Morgan helped me understand and respect multiple cultures which is an essential part of working in a diverse company such as Exelon. Morgan also helped me develop analytic and problem solving skills that I use in my everyday duties at Exelon.
What advice do you have for students who are seeking opportunities in your field?
As a recent graduate, it can be sometimes difficult to land a job right away. The advice I have is to keep searching and researching about the companies where you would like to work. Align your passion with the companies that offer you the positions that you are most interested in. Develop the skills that you may need in the role you would like to work. Participate in events and seminars such as Career Day and Company profile day, this helps in creating meaningful networking where the mentors can help and guide you to a successful career.
