How you benefited from working with WOC? I work with sales now and I speak on the phone all the time. WOC definitely helped me learn how to form relationships with strangers over the phone, even when you're asking for something from them.
Why did you enjoy working for WOC? My favorite part was connecting with alumni who shared a favorite class or professor with me. It was always fun to chat about our mutual love of Wofford.

How do you use the skills you learned through WOC in your current job? I gained the ability to talk to people I don't know over the phone. In sales, it is essential to form relationships with complete strangers you may never meet face to face so that you can bring in contracts. WOC was very similar to that and it has helped me tremendously.

Anything else you’d like to say about Wofford and/or Wofford On Call? A little piece of my heart is at Wofford. I'm lucky to have been a part of WOC so that I could help bring in donations to help better our awesome little school.
