Amy Hetrick, 2016
Amy Hetrick came to Huntington University to pursue a degree in Marketing and Management. She loved the tight-knit community that existed within the business department. While she was at HU, she served as the Student Director of Marketing for Clear Insights. It gave her good experience and it was a unique leadership role that not many universities offer.
Hetrick’s education led her to a job as a Human Resources Coordinator at Fort Wayne Metals. Her duties include onboarding new employees, administering pre-employment tests, recruiting, interviewing, and serving on several different project teams.
She recommends that current students pursue internships; it’s never too early to start the search! When she started her first job, she admitted that there was a learning curve. However, she noted that having an internship in the field helped her to get ahead.
“They really are a win-win-win. You fill your resume with solid experience, and you get a chance to try out something that you may be doing for the rest of your life,” she said.
Hetrick emphasized that going to HU was the best decision she ever made. Her reasoning?
“The community was amazing, the learning was constant, and the friends are lifelong.”
