Financial Controller in Green Bay:
"Learning Never Ends."
College proves to the employer that you can learn. It won't teach you everything you need on the job. Be prepared to keep learning. Learn about the industry you're going into, it might be different than what you learned in school. Learn about the company, it's competition, the region, the culture. Many people say 'always be yourself', but remember, that everyone is different and you have to be aware of how others react, so being yourself in every situation may not be the best. Oh, and don't forget to keep learning.
