While interviewing with a Bethel alum for a position at UnitedHealth Group, the interviewer asked me to consider joining the International Audit department instead of the position for which I had applied. At the time, I had next to no idea what working in International Audit entailed! That same Bethel alum also connected me to the Healthcare Reform opportunity three years later. So, it’s safe to say that my career path was undeniably influenced by Bethel and this wonderful alum who decided to take a chance on me – not just once, but twice.Chin-Chin Lin '09

As a Christian in the workplace, I am able to connect with people on a different level. I know my reason for being there and do my part to create an encouraging work environment for my coworkers. I hope my attitude is a positive example observable through the way I make decisions, treat my clients, and strive for excellence every day.Andrew Vennerstrom '07

Bethel really prepared me...having a liberal arts education was beneficial because it made me well rounded. [Businesses] look for people with all sorts of different backgrounds and leadership experience. Bethel encourages people to get involved.Nicole (Nettleton) Willenbring '12
