Jerica Schlachter

ACE Class of 2018

Why did you chose to join the ACE program?

The ACE program is a fantastic opportunity to develop professional skills alongside a group of like-minded students. I wanted a chance to meet other students with similar ambitions and a dedication to finding out a place to start our career paths.

What was your biggest takeaway?

Talk to everyone and anyone, even if you think you would never be interested in their career path. Talking to people helps you sort through all of the opportunities in the Bay.

How has the ACE program complimented your business education?

It has helped me learn how to translate my classroom lessons into career opportunities. I learned how to discuss these skills in interviews and while networking.

What was the best advice you received during your time in ACE?

To prepare for interviews, write out your answers and practice your response in the mirror in order to see how it actually sounds. It allows you to think through your ideas and discover gaps in the answers you hadn’t thought about.
