Peter Olatuyi: His job success story at Travelers; a wonderful, happy ending!

                                                               Peter Olatuyi

Peter's professional shot

It seems only fitting to write a final success wrap-up for my mentee Peter Olatuyi. If you are a follower of my blog, you will know that I featured Peter several times. He was the VCU senior finance student who was hit by a car in Nov. 2012. The accident and recovery time set Peter back in terms of graduating because he had to miss so much time from school and there were so many adjustments to be made. It was a struggle when he returned to school because his car, laptop, and phone were all destroyed because of the impact of the collision. In addition, he was on crutches (a plate had to be inserted into his leg) and now had to rely on friends to get around. The financial burden of the accident was also overwhelming.

Peter, who was originally scheduled to graduate in May 2013, finally graduated in Dec. 2013  (picture 2-Peter giving a speech at his graduation party). Like most new alumni, he was aggressive in the job search process hoping to find a full-time position in the insurance field as soon as possible.
I asked Peter to share a bit about his experience with the search process and he said:  “Searching for a job is never fun. Realistically, it becomes tiring after applying to jobs and not getting hired or even hearing back from the employers. It felt good to be called for interviews but that wasn’t enough. I needed an offer. I remember applying to several business-related position with diverse companies. I know I possess passion, and the professional skills every employer should desire. I met with my career counselor, Darlene, a couple more times to update her on my search for a job. She was definitely a great resource for me and gave me the right encouragement needed (picture 3) .

Most graduating seniors don’t walk right into a new job opportunity. Instead the average search time is between 3 & 6 months.

 

I asked Peter how he stayed positive while job searching, especially when things seemed to be moving rather slowly. Instead of falling into a slump, Peter decided to set up an on-line magazine, called “M-Lifestyle”. He said, “I knew by this platform, I could add value to people’s lives. I felt like there are so many youth out there who are doing extraordinary things but have little or no recognition. This magazine is committed to showcasing and celebrating “renaissance youth” the young people who are not intimidated by the communities in which they live, young people who thrive in the space beyond their comfort zones, and young people who dare to rule their world. We want to inspire our audience by featuring the inspired. I was able to register my business on this platform and the first publication will be out in the month of May. The whole experience has taught me that delays could be a blessing in disguise”.

Travelers Umbrella

Offer!  Peter fits right in the 3-6 month job search time line! In April 2014, he accepted a full-time position with Travelers as a Field Support Specialist.
How did he find the Travelers position? The Human Resources Manager for Travelers, Sharan Gore, was not a stranger to Peter, or many other business majors and alumni here at VCU. Peter has interacted with her at several career fairs, at career-related workshops and even had a mock interview with Ms. Gore last year. When he heard that Travelers was hiring, he applied right away and followed-up with Ms. Gore to let her know he applied. That on-going relationship and the networking with Ms. Gore really paid off.

Another reason to Celebrate:
On April 16, Peter had to take off, because something else was going on that was extremely exciting. This was Peter’s day to celebrate becoming a US Citizen! (picture 4 & picture 4.1 Peter & his dad).

When he returned to work the next day, his Traveler’s family wanted to celebrate with him as well. There were red, white and blue cupcakes, a flag and other United States icons all around his work area! (picture 5)

It is great to be a career counselor and a mentor for a ton of amazing business students and alumni going through the job search process. There can be unexpected challenges and frustrations along the way, but Peter said it best, “With all of the things that have happened to me, I believe everything happens for a reason. Don’t quit.  Persistence is a key to progress”.

Congratulations from all of us Peter! You have made us proud!

You’re also looking for a competitive compensation package to begin to knock down those student loans.  We offer a stable, spirited corporate environment with an innovative edge.

 

We’re looking for Active Thinkers who love technology and can learn enterprise-level performance needs. Tactics are important, but you’ll never survive if you can’t develop Strategy first! You’ll test our kick-ass applications and make sure that our customers will always have a great experience with our apps.

·         A passion for learning from our teams.

 

·         Strong communication and teamwork skills.

 

·         Find and fix performance issues in our software and systems.

Big 4 Accounting Success for Vu Nguyen!

I know it is not easy.  There is tremendous pressure on senior accounting students to secure a full-time offer before they graduate.  During the accounting recruiting season, students juggle a heavy class load, remain active in student organizations, network with employers, try and maintain high GPAs, volunteer, work in their field, attend career-related events and have to find time to interview.

Senior accounting major, Vu Nguyen, would probably agree that the process is demanding.   Vu stands out to me because of his quiet nature and his professionalism.   Vu and I connected in early 2012 during our career counseling appointments.  Like most juniors, he was looking for an internship in his major to build his resume and gain first-hand experience.  With his strong GPA, I suggested that he register for the Accounting Internship class, where he interviewed and was placed at the Virginia Credit Union as an Internal Audit Intern.

When the fall 2013 Accounting Season began, Vu, now armed with an accounting internship and dynamite resume, aggressively jumped right in with very high hopes.   As a full-time student, he was extremely busy networking and interviewing with several companies.  If that was not enough, Vu was now one of the leaders in Beta Alpha Psi, where he was also earning volunteer hours and was active with career center activities as well.  He mock interviewed with one of the recruiters with the Big 4 and attended almost every workshop we presented to make sure that he was as prepared as possible.

So what happens when you do everything right, and there still isn’t an offer?  At the end of the fall semester, Vu came to visit me and brought me one of the nicest, kindest and most heartfelt card I have ever received in the 22 years I have been in student services.   In the card, Vu thanked me for helping him build professional skills and for my willingness to listen and help.   Vu admitted that he was feeling a bit discouraged because he had not received an offer.  My advice was simple.  I encouraged him to get back out there and continue to do all of the things he had been doing and stay positive.

Good things come to those who wait:  By the Spring, Vu landed another part-time accounting position, but continued to interview for that allusive full time offer.

In March 2014, Vu stopped by to share with me that he landed the Financial Services Assurance Staff position with Ernst &Young!

Let Vu’s experience be a motivator for all of you.  When things do not quite happen as quickly as you would like, make sure you stay positive and continue to get yourself out there.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help, find a mentor and try again, and again, and again.  The payoff is usually AMAZING!!
