When graduating college, a key component in my career decision was the value I placed in building not only a diverse skill set, but also a diverse network of opportunities and experiences. The Digital Rotational Program continuously delivered on both fronts, as each rotation allowed me to build a portfolio of experience that I will carry throughout my career and beyond.
