Tony Trandafir

Hometown: Las Vegas, Nevada
Employer: Epic
Job title: project manager
How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?
Dickinson has been instrumental in my personal and professional development, preparing me for unknown situations after graduating. Dickinson’s rigorous academic curriculum has given me a well-rounded education, emphasizing critical thinking, problem-solving and practical communication skills. The small class sizes and close interactions with professors allowed me to articulate my ideas effectively. As a law & policy major specifically, I focused on analyzing legal issues while concentrating on advocacy and justice for various groups. The internship opportunities and extracurricular activities I’ve participated in allowed me to think about how my actions impact the world around me and prepared me for a role in project management. Although I’ll be working at a medical software company and have no experience in either of those fields, my liberal arts education has allowed me to embrace learning and think critically and strategically to solve problems. These skills are necessary for many fields, and I believe I am well positioned to enter the workforce because of my sustainable and globally focused education.
