Glen ShawStillman School of Business continues to launch students into successful careers. Glen Shaw, class of 2013, recently accepted a full time position as a rotating analyst in a two year Financial Development Program at CIT Group Inc. He will switch roles every six months within the Chief Financial Officer's Organization.

His first role was in the Treasury working in "Legal Entity Strategy," a group responsible for managing subsidiaries and the corporate structure. His primary duty was the opening of new entities, dissolution of entities, and the analysis around these actions.

Glen is now moving into his second rotation within CIT's Vendor Finance Business, a group that provides equipment leasing and financing options to corporations who would not traditionally be able to provide that to customers. His goal is "to learn as much possible to bring the perspective of a controller to my future roles".

Glen took full advantage of a unique set of internship and employment experiences. As a Sophomore, he interned at Prudential in Newark, NJ as the liaison between operations and the systems development teams . This was followed by an internship with ACA Compliance, where he worked with the analyst team to help consultants with client issues, primarily the regulatory side of financial services. Lastly, Glen interned at JP Morgan in Wilmington, DE, working in Risk Analytics in the Corporate Analyst Development Program.

These experiences were extremely helpful in determining Glen’s career direction. "There is no other way to learn what you like and do not like without getting out there and trying it. The last thing you want to do is spend money for the degree and find out in your full time role that you don’t enjoy the work in field of study you chose." Glen was also very active in career-related student activities, which served him well throughout his college career.

"All of my experiences were invaluable – I learned more in on campus organizations and internships than I did in the classroom. Don’t wait for someone to come up to you, tap you on the shoulder, and give you opportunities. You need to get out there and take them for yourself."
