“Good news. I accepted a full time job offer from an advertising agency yesterday, yay! I wanted to tell you that the first thing people asked me about when interviewing was about PINC and my trip to Spain. I thought that was awesome, and I think it played a huge role in landing me a job-it really started the conversation smoothly and I even met 2 people who have traveled to Spain numerous times. Simple way to get a connection in off the bat. So thank you again for everything.” – Stephanie L., Western Michigan University
