Student Testimonials

"UGA’s top talent competition gave me the confidence and networking opportunities to succeed. As a winner of the competition, I was awarded an interview for an accounting leadership conference which has now resulted in an internship. Through the contest, I was able to build great relationships with many firms and companies. Participating in the Top Talent Contest not only opened doors and initiated relationships with recruiters, but also it introduced me to new peers while increasing my confidence in my abilities to succeed in the business world."

"The Top Talent contest gave me the opportunity to meet new people from companies that I hadn’t previously recruited with and to strengthen my relationship with the companies in which I had a previous interest. Those relationships eventually led to multiple internship offers by the end of the year."
