"Jeremey is very diligent about servicing and helping customers identify gaps in their financial situation. His relentless effort to help his customers has enabled him to be a leader in his position, which is a major factor in him receiving the Citizen of Excellence award. I have worked alongside many graduates from Point Park through the years. They all seem to have one similar trait: commitment. They have commitment to help those they interact with and a commitment to do what’s right. Jeremey exemplifies this trait daily and it becomes contagious to those he works and interacts with, which creates a greater good for everyone."
"Point Park put me into a position to succeed immediately upon my graduation. The education I received very much simulated the real world. Often we had industry professionals hold workshops in class so students would get a taste of the everyday routine and expectations that are required across the board in the professional world. When entering the workforce, it's experiences and knowledge like this that gives Point Park graduates a leg up on the competition."

What factors made you choose Point Park University?There were many factors that led me to choosing Point Park University. I saw the University’s location as a major advantage over most schools. Having the opportunity to network and be immersed with working professionals in Downtown Pittsburgh every day proved to be invaluable to this point in my career.
Another reason I selected Point Park was the exceptional faculty that the school had to offer. My professors served as an amazing support system during my time at Point Park. Whether I had questions regarding academics or career advice, the faculty made it a priority to find time to speak to me.

What career advice do you have for our business management students?
If I could leave current and future business management students with one piece of advice, it would be to use all the resources that Point Park has put at your disposal and to never quit networking. Take advantage of all the networking events not only hosted at Point Park, but all around the city, and get out and promote yourself! Even if the opportunity is not something you are currently looking for, have conversations and connect with as many professionals as possible. You never truly know when you might cross paths with that individual later on in your career.
