Student Experience Student Experience


"I had the opportunity to attend the Finance Career Exploration Trip with the Finance & Economics Club in Fall 2015. We visited the corporate offices of Maverik, Workday, and Morgan Stanley. The trip was especially valuable to me because it gave me the opportunity to connect with some of the team members in Workday's financial operations department during the trip. While attending the career fair on campus a few weeks later, members of the Workday booth recognized me and called me over to set up an interview. I was offered an internship that lasted 12-weeks the following summer. My great experience in Workday's internship program landed me a full-time job offer on their Accounts Payable team as an Accounting Analyst. I begin working with them this January 2017. I am thrilled to be working at a company like Workday and I'm beyond grateful for those that put together the career exploration trip that led me to this career path." - Austin Smoot
