What Activities are You Involved In?
Concrete Canoe and Chi Epsilon Honor Fraternity
What Brought You to ARCO?
I heard a few friends talking about the company, so I visited ARCO’s booth at the S&T career fair. I really enjoyed talking to ARCO’s representatives and learning about the company, so I decided I’d like to work with them.
What is a Typical Day Like for an ARCO Co-Op?
Usually I meet with my project manager mentor first thing in the morning and go over the projects that they are working on and discuss ways that I can help support them. Then we’ll come up with a list of tasks and due dates, so I know what I need to do and when I need to get it done. I’ll touch base with other project managers too throughout the day, and add more tasks to my to do list.
What is the Best Advice You Have Ever Received?
If you want something, set goals and plans. Then go after it! Don’t let anything stop you from achieving that goal.
If You Could Give Advice to Future Co-Ops, What Would it Be?
Take initiative. If you’ve finished all of your projects and have a little free time, ask other project managers or associates if they could use any help. Usually they do, and they are grateful that you asked!
What is On Your Bucket List?
I’d like to sky dive, travel to Brazil and Egypt, enjoy the last few semesters of college, graduate and find a great job, and go to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
