As the BBA prepares to graduate 58 summer jobs students, Beyond the Billable wanted to take the opportunity to look back at some of our past graduates to see where they are now. Fortunately for us, we had a chance run in with Sam Faisal, who interned at the BBA last summer through the Summer Jobs Program. During our chance encounter with Sam we found out he is spending the summer working for William Roa, a public defender in Boston. He has been going to court, interviewing clients, and preparing for the start of a new case next week.
Beyond the Billable asked Sam how the BBA Summer Jobs Program prepared him for his current summer internship. Here’s what he had to say:
“It prepared me for the office environment. I also realized that some days may not be what you expect, but you have to make the best of it. The more experience you get, the better prepared you will be. “
Sam is a rising sophomore at Johnson & Wales University where he studies criminal justice.
