Stanford Spotlight – Graduate Students Talk About Earning a Degree Online


(music) I would say the honors co-op program made
it possible for me to have the career I have now. Um. I really was an electrical engineer, and that’s all I was when I got out of undergraduate school. Um. I don’t think I would have been able
to succeed in with essentially a undergraduate school. Um. I don’t think I would have been able
to succeed in what’s essentially a software career, um, had I not done the honors co-op
program. This honors co-op program really benefited
me professionally because I was able to get some exposure to what
the business world is like. And found out that’s something I like to do.
And subsequently, at least at Xerox, I was able to move away
from an engineering career path, to, um, moving to the strategic business office. The honors co-op program had a very deep impact on my professional development, ah, because it really gave me the skills
that ah I need to do my job today, which is no longer pure engineering, but a
much broader sense of whole business management. I, as a hiring manager, and, ah, am looking for talent, when I see a
Stanford Master’s degree on that resume, first of all, I know what it
means to get one. And I actually put on my resume not only
that I got my master’s degree, but I also did it during the time when I was working. (silence)

    Can applicants not submit any recommendation letters for applications ?

    That’s the off-putting part for various reasons.
