Catherine Del Fierro goes to Cal Poly Pomona and is a business administration major with a concentration in business management and human resources; she has also worked as a background investigator, running background checks for clients. In the future, Catherine hopes to work at a company with a thriving work environment but ultimately wants to become a professor.
Catherine wanted to get more HR experience and found out about the VA’s DME Internship through a virtual career fair at her college. There she learned about the benefits and scholarships that the DME Internship offers. Catherine is especially concerned about the recent arrival of virtual learning, which poses another challenge and opportunity for Catherine to engage with more students and professors online through her experience in Human Resources.
