“I got my dream job before graduation."

When JODY GARELLEK (B.S. ’15) reports to 30 Rockefeller Center for her first day as an Electrical Engineer for NBCUniversal, it won’t be her first rodeo. Jody will be able to solve problems creatively, work in teams, and communicate efficiently. Over the past few years, she honed those real-world skills as an Electrical Engineering major at UM and as an intern with NBCUniversal’s Operations and Technical Services Department where she worked in the control room for shows like The Today Show, Tonight Show, and SNL. The first in her family to go to college in the U.S., Jody landed her dream job before graduation. Her advice? Don’t be intimidated by the challenges. They exist to make you grow, not to fail.
