Bronco Spotlight: Jacob Hanson

Jacob Hanson

Bachelor of Business Administration in integrated supply management, 2021

Leadership Development Program at Parker Hannifin

If you had a campus job or internship, how did they impact your career development?

I had two valuable internships with Glanbia Performance Nutrition and Honda, both were in supply chain. These internships allowed me to apply what I learned in the classroom. In my opinion this is what made me stand out when I was looking for a full-time position.

What activities, resources, or people helped you prepare for your career?

My parents, friends and mentors from the ISM department really guided me through classroom and personal life!

Which of your skills had the biggest impact on your success?

Time management was something that stood out for me in terms of skills. Not only was it a big topic in interviews but now that I’m working full time it is more relevant than ever. You need to have time management skills to perform in the workplace. 

What advice do you have for others pursuing a career similar to yours? 

For those pursuing a business degree, especially ISN, please get out and go for that internship/co-op. It is worth the busy summer to be able to learn hands on and relate to what is being taught in the classroom. It stands out more than anything on your resume!
