As a college Junior I learned about HACE through my career advisor in college. I immediately knew this was a great resource that could help me out, being that I only had retail experience and was seeking an opportunity in a field of Human Resources. As an HACE member, I got the opportunity to embark on the most challenging experience in my career up to now. Through HACE I was able to land an opportunity with The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago as an HR Recruiting Summer Associate. My experience here at The Fed was great. I was able to gain real world work experience in such an energetic, fast paced corporate environment. I was able to meet many wonderful people and learn from them.
I believe that as a Latino, it is important to be able to connect with organizations like HACE that can help you succeed. They are invested in their members and in helping them be prosperous and successful people. During my time at The Fed I was able to attend a few HACE events that reassured me more of the mission they have to help out and promote Latino development and career success. Thanks to the great connections I made at HACE and at The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago I was able to land my next opportunity as an HR Fall Staffing Intern at DePaul University.
