RCI Student Employment Opportunities

"Having competed against 120 other applicants last fall for one of ten positions, I was offered an incredible position after graduation. While my interviewers were impressed with my business knowledge, it was my IT experience gained at RCI that provided me with the competitive edge I needed to win my ideal job." -Brie '13
