From the field to the workforce

blog_hannahmeager2Hannah Meager is no stranger to hard work. In addition to her four years on the track and field team, she’s held three on-campus jobs and pursued majors in communication and psychology. She also interned at Alright Solutions, the leading third-party human resources outsourcing company in the world. That internship has led to a job with the corporation and an opportunity for Meager to return to her home state of California this summer.

As a student and an athlete, Meager has gained experience to prepare her for a bright future. “AU has taught me about time management and task management — even about the management of a group of people,” she said. “During my interviews, I was able to talk about these experiences, as well as my leadership skills and dedication to teamwork. And I was able to apply what I learned in college during my internship. I think this was a big advantage in ultimately getting hired.”

Meager’s new job will consist of administering health and welfare benefits. She’s up to the challenge in large part because of the support she’s received from her coaches and teammates. “They’ve helped me grow in confidence,” she said. “I’ve learned that while mistakes will happen on and off the field, they can often be incredible learning experiences. I’ll be taking that lesson with me as I begin my career.”
