I just started the first week at my post-MBA full time job at Carestream Health, a medical imaging system manufacturer headquartered in Rochester, NY. My first days as a Marketing Analyst have been going pretty well, and looking back I feel that the Experiential Learning component of the MBA program at Whitman made me well-prepared to enter the working world. In addition to classroom work, I had three distinct internship experiences, all helping me get a step closer to the elusive full time placement.
