Finding IUPUI

I did not attend IUPUI right away.

Before transferring to IUPUI as a junior, I spent my first two years at a community college. However, I chose IUPUI and the School of Science for a variety of reasons.

It was closer to my home in Indianapolis, it was less costly than my other options without compromising quality education, I was offered scholarships, and it was overall a very welcoming campus.

It suited my personality and lifestyle, and most importantly, it had a diverse student population!

PREParing for the future

With the help of the Office of Pre-Professional & Career Preparation (PREPs), who reviewed my resume, I decided to put my best foot forward and attend the Fall Career Fair. It was there that I met a representative from Eli Lilly!

A few weeks later, I was invited to a total of three interviews. After the initial invitation, PREP’s helped me with mock interview sessions and tips on how to ace both virtual and in-person interviews. The PREPs advisor recommended having one of my chemistry professors assist me in preparing for my technical interview which turned out to be super helpful.

All three interview were successful, and I was offered a job!
