Arrow Down Success Stories & Testimonials

  • “I just want to thank you for this great opportunity your chapter form APICS has given us. It was a really nice experience to get to meet so many people in the same environment I plan to form a career in.” – Johana, Senior at Cal State Fullerton

  • “You've all made an incredible impact on my life trajectory and I'm proud to say I'm a better person for having met you wonderful individuals. After going to the Mock Interview event, I felt more in sync with my career plans and my personal development. The Mock Interview is an excellent tool to help students like myself gain an edge on the rest of the new graduates. I originally had interviewed for a Purchasing Intern position which went very well, and earlier this week a Sales Manager with the same company called me and said his colleagues highly recommended he interview me for a full-time position. I went in for my interview today and it went flawlessly, I was offered the position on the spot as a Contract Sales Representative. I'm excited because I will be able to put my textbook knowledge to some use in an SAP work environment for what looks like an amazing company. I wouldn't have been able to do this without you!” – Ted, 2014 Graduate
