Baylor, BBA

What’s the fastest way to NOT get a job or internship with you? (e.g. what should potential applicants avoid doing if they were to ever interview with you for a position). 

Faking the interview.  Be yourself.  The interview goes both ways.  Be sure the company is just as good a fit for you as you are for them.

You see the fruits of your labor and change the face of your community.

Do you have a work or life motto? What is it?
