Paralegal at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, an international law firm

“The technical skills that you develop inadvertently throughout your collegiate journey are very helpful – assembling bibliographies, utilizing computer skills, and even just sending respectful emails are all skills that I use every day. I’m also grateful for the emphasis that my Butler education placed on interpersonal communication and the open sharing of ideas, as that is also conducive to an office setting. And, of course, having the opportunity to live and study in DC for a semester helped me prepare to live and work in this city full-time.”
