HR Generalist

I attended my first NBMBAA® Conference as soon as I completed my MBA with the hopes of landing my dream job. I was exposed to so many great companies that I would have never imagined. The networking was great and when Coca-Cola called, I was more than prepared to accept my dream job!! Thanks, NBMBAA® !
