Jada Strickland
STUDENT INTERNSHIPS SPOTLIGHT

Jada Strickland

Jada Strickland ’21 learned about PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) through Dr. Leary, who took students to PwC during Insight Day. Now Strickland is interning with the company. This summer she is using Alteryx and Tableau to create a delivery for Donorschoose.org and shadow the different lines of service (advisory, tax, and assurance).

“When I finish my internship I hope to learn as much as I can about Alteryx and Tableau so that I can use the tools and skills and apply them within my courses at JCSU, network with lots of people, and be able to know what line of service I can see myself doing in the future.”

Strickland encourages other Smithites to intern with companies. “It gives you a glimpse of what a typical day would be like in the real world. You can also network with people who could be helpful in the future.”
