As the end of the semester rapidly approaches, seniors in the Ivan Allen College are working hard to figure out the next steps they’ll be taking after getting out of Georgia Tech. We talked to several Ivan Allen College seniors from the class of 2017 about their upcoming employment and graduate school plans.
“I have loved my time at Georgia Tech and am thankful for the opportunity to be inspired by so many of the incredible people around me. I’m looking forward to the future and spending the next year studying abroad as a Fulbright Scholar. I will be in the M.S. One Health (Infectious Diseases) program at the Royal Veterinary College, and I hope to use this degree to pursue progress and service in the field of global health.”

"I couldn’t be more excited to start my professional career working on the Content and Production team at Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group, their full-service in-house advertising agency. My time at Georgia Tech has been truly unforgettable and I can’t wait to put all that I’ve learned here to work in the real world!"
- Jack McRee (Literature, Media, and Communication)
“With graduation fast approaching, I can honestly say majoring in Economics and International Affairs has been one of my best college decisions. By majoring in liberal arts at a predominately technical school, I have learned both the writing and analytical skills needed for my future job as an investment analyst for PGIM Real Estate.”
- Alexa Grzech (Economics and International Affairs)
“I’ve had a great time in the Literature, Media, and Communication program over the past four years, and I can’t believe that graduation is just around the corner! As I’m wrapping up my last few weeks at Georgia Tech, I’m preparing for a move to Austin, Texas, to join Facebook’s account management team. I’m nervous to move to a new city to start my first full-time job, but I can definitely say my experiences over the past four years have prepared me for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. I can’t wait to see what’s next!”
- Brian Robins (Literature, Media, and Communication)
“Graduating has been pretty bittersweet. I am ready to wrap up my studies at Georgia Tech, but I have grown to like Atlanta and I am going to miss all of the friends I have made. After I enjoy a couple of months off from school, I’m excited to be heading to the University of North Carolina to pursue a master’s degree in public health. I am looking forward to doing coursework that is in my field of interest, and I think Chapel Hill is pretty cool.”
- Sarah Scott (History and Sociology)
“I’ll be working at Terminus Software in Buckhead starting in August. I’m excited to graduate (mostly to adopt a dog), but I’m definitely going to miss all the opportunities to travel that college provides.”
- Austin Beacham (Applied Languages and Intercultural Studies, Business)
“I’ve made great memories at Georgia Tech and will find it hard to say goodbye to the strong foundation that I’ve been building here since freshman year. However, I cannot wait to start my next chapter as a project manager at Cox Communications!”
- Hannah Musall (International Affairs)
