As a software developer with One Main Financial in Evansville, Rachel Bury ’19, computer information systems, is part of a business intelligence team that refines digital tools for the firm’s business processes. What began as a student internship turned into a full-time staff position upon graduation.
Bury credits the Romain College of Business for providing a well-rounded foundation in computer information systems. For example, she points to the SQL programming language she now works with.
“It’s impossible for classes to cover everything there is to know in this field, but I think the College did a good job of touching on a broad range of topics. Data analytics, in particular, is a big help with what I am doing now.”
Bury also cites the advantages of many different resources she enjoyed as a student—career fairs, speaker panels and networking opportunities with senior IT executives.
“Going from an internship to full-time employment has helped me grow professionally and personally—I’m really loving what I do.”
