Hello everyone. My name is Emily and I have experienced a lot in the corporate world that you do not learn in books or college. However, these experiences PLUS COLLEGE make you stronger and more capable of achieving that next promotion coming right around the corner will make you more successful.

During college, my mom and I decided to do some Volunteer Work,and signed up for a 10 week "English as a second Language" endeavor. I will not lie. These classes were three hours long and my schedule was streched very thin. At the end of the 10th class, we held a small graduation and we were assigned a student(s). I was assiged one student named Sonny. She seemed very nice and had a list of things she wanted to accomplish with my help. My mom was assigned three new students. (In later years she became very well known by the asian community because she invited them to every major holiday including ones we didn't necessarily celebrate like kwanza. It has been over 20 years and she still gets letters and the occasional visits. Without exception, her students have all moved to Silicon Valley but they still come to Delaware to stay with my mom for a few days.

Now, Sonny wanted me to take her shopping for the following: 1 interview suit, 1 pair of interview shoes, 1 pair American jeans, and 1 American outfit similar to the one I wore on week 3. Oh Yes, almost forgot, American Slang. At the time, I enjoyed taking Sonny shopping and sharing some ideas that not all color is bad. For the first time, I think she smiled because she really thought she looked good. I did feel sad when she told me that would never where these clothes back in China. It took the wind right out of my sails. But, I keep her smile in my mind and everything is ok. Sonny and I kept in touch for a few years but she moved and we lost each other

After graduating, my career moved with the same fervor as my time in college. I began at Mellon Bank as a Financial Service Rep. This was a standard Entry Level position. After 15 months, I moved to WSFS bank where I was eventually promoted to District Area Manager of Pennsylvania. This was great. I was making more money and socializing with the people whose picture I have only seen on the walls of the main office.

Finally, I was lured by a better offer from AstraZeneca. I was hired on to be an Operations Capability Project Manager. I also had a chance to serve a SAP COMPUTER VALIDATION Manager as well as a training manager and systems developer. There were an abundance of things I learned at AstraZeneca that will always be with me. By getting the first step- EDUCATION- mastered, you will be well on your way to achieve greatness.
