Mary Foley is a rising senior majoring in Management with the Human Resources (MHR) option

Company: Capital One

Position: Human Resources Intern

I chose MGT because I wanted to leave Virginia Tech with a holistic education that would prepare me for whatever tasks came my way. MGT is an area of study that has so much opportunity and potential because it is crucial in every line of business. After completing an internship after my freshman year of college, I knew Human Resources (HR) was my passion and something I wanted to pursue further. I chose the HRM track of MGT and have loved every minute of it thus far!

So many of my Management classes have prepared me for success in my current internship. One in particular was my Staffing class I took this past Spring. During orientation, I was amazed how many concepts and staffing terminology I was already familiar with because Professor Zimmerman had drilled them into my brain.

After Graduation I plan to begin my career as an HR professional! I hope to one day get my MBA and serve as a leader in the HR industry, creating positive change for those around me.

We are very proud of you Mary - keep up the great work!

Collaborate. Innovate. Integrate.
