My experience at RMU and future plans

Graduating in 2007 was a scary time. With the economy in recession and people losing their jobs, I knew it would be hard for a new graduate to find employment.  

Although it took some time to secure employment, my environmental and leaderships skills that I gained from Robert Morris provided me with the confidence and knowledge to secure an office position with an industrial contractor.  This position exposed me to how the company operated and gave me an opportunity to prove myself. 

After two months of work I impressed my boss and he promoted me to a project manager position. I climbed up the ladder quickly in my 8 years with the employer. 

During that time I became one of the top project managers at my job, working on multi-million dollar projects. Over the past couple years I obtained several certifications that have allowed me to become a top project manager.

Looking to the future I plan to assist my dad, who’s been a project manager for over 30 years, grow his business which he started in early 2016. With this opportunity to work alongside my father I will gain experience in starting and running a company. I also hope to help him grow the company into a multi-million dollar enterprise that I will one day be able to take over.
