"NDSU Business Connections provided me the opportunity to meet with Jim Hambrick from Cornerstone Bank. I have a deep appreciation for the opportunity to participate in this program and to my mentor for the inspiration, motivation, and mentorship over this past year.  Throughout my mentoring experience, I had the opportunity to conduct a mock interview, have my resume critiqued, network with professionals in banking, and learn from different departments in the bank. The opportunity to conduct a mock interview and have my resume critiqued developed my confidence in the interview process. Networking with professionals at Cornerstone Bank helped me develop communication skills and build relationships while learning more about the functions of each department. Ultimately, I am grateful for my mentor sparking my curiosity, allowing me to ask plenty of questions, giving me insight on the real world, and coaching me."
