Our team at the CPDC is excited to announce a new blog series that will be appearing on our UConnect page. This blog series will be highlighting young alumni and how they stay involved on the Hill. It will allow you to get to know a bit about where alumni go after graduating and where you might see them here at Nichols.
We are going to kick off this blog series with an interview with Dan Roman. Dan was a member of the class of 2014 and majored in Business Management. He was captain of the men’s tennis team and involved with the Leadership Committee, Future Planning Committee, as well as being an Ambassador.
Since graduating, Dan worked in several positions for Verizon Wireless and is currently a client partner with Enterprise Mobile Security for Verizon Wireless. He is also currently working towards his Master of Business Administration focusing in Leadership at Post University.
When we spoke with Dan, we asked him “How have you stayed involved in the Nichols Community?” and here is what he shared with us:
“Nichols prepared me for my career by giving me the tools and resources to excel at a high level on Day 1. I try to give back as much as possible, by participating in Mock Interviews for Junior/Senior PDS students to give them a real-world example of how an interview can go (both the good and the bad!) I also work with the Sophomore Shout-out team to spend a night networking with students that are just in the middle of their journey, to give them a resource that could benefit them in the future. Lastly, I stay well connected to the Men’s Tennis team at Nichols, of which I was a part of when I was a student, and have a special passion for.”
We also wanted to know what Dan has gained personally, professionally, or otherwise from staying involved at Nichols. He told us:
“By staying present within Nichols, I have the ability to personally expand my network, and build an ecosystem for future positions that may come in the future. I also get the humanitarian benefit of doing what so many did for me when I was a student, and really “pay it forward” to incoming students. I appreciated my time at Nichols, and look to continue to stay involved and give back any way I can!”
We want to say a big thank you to Dan for taking the time to share this with us. If you see Dan around on the Hill, be sure to say hi or stop and chat with him!
