SUMMER EXPERIENCE SPOTLIGHTS
Posted 10/01/2016 08:00AM

Through the Career Resource Center, GA alumna Megan Jasson ’13, now a senior at Georgetown, gained valuable global business experience in Dubai thanks to a GA parent.

Writes Megan, “With only five of us on the team to restructure the IT department of a government agency, I was given significant work to do. My colleagues came from all over the world: the States, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Germany. It was an unbelievably rich and unique experience to be working alongside such diverse and intelligent people, and I’m confident these experiences will stay with me for life. I am eternally grateful that as I navigate the future, GA will always be there as a resource
for my fellow alumnae and me.”

Alumna Caitlin Buckley ’13, a senior at Williams and school president and assistant hockey captain too!, found her dream internship through a GA alumna from the Class of ’01 who is a principle at Amity Search Partners, which specializes on Private Equity and Hedge Funds. Caitlin shares, “Something that I had always been interested in, but was never quite sure of how to break into, was recruiting. The Career Resource Center introduced me to numerous friends of GA who were involved in search. I landed an amazing summer internship at Amity that culminated with a phenomenal offer for full-time employment upon graduation come May! I've always considered GA a second home and a second family, and my experiences over the past 6 months have only served to strengthen that belief.

Anna, a GA Senior from the Class of 2017, pursued several passions this summer: first her keen interest in sustainability and conservation was showcased at the Greenwich Land Trust, followed by an equally compelling stint at an international media consulting firm founded by a GA alumna from the Class of ’99. She shares, “The fascinating work I did this summer ranged from compiling information on how to greet people of different cultures for a report for a UN Secretary General candidate, to helping at a documentary screening in New York, to researching the growing issue of persecution of Christians in the Middle East.”  In turn, her mentor reports, “Anna was by far one of the best interns I have ever worked with and that include undergraduate and graduate students.  She has an extremely positive can-do attitude, an insatiable desire to learn, and the ability to turn out excellent work. I will definitely miss her as my intern but something tells me we will remain close for a long time!”
