Business Graduates

Pamela S. Daves

WHAT I DO NOW:  I work for the largest 3rd party logistics company in North America in the Colorado Springs office. 

MY JOB/WORK CONSISTS OF: I am an account manager; I work with about 40 different clients in different industries and help manage each of their supply chain/transportation needs.

HOW I GOT TO LSUS (OR WHY I CHOSE LSUS): I am from the area; I started college at LSU in Baton Rouge.  While I loved it and had a great time, I wanted to be closer to home, so I transferred back to LSU Shreveport.

FOND MEMORIES OF LSUS: I loved going to college with both of my sisters- we all took a speech class together and had a great time!

LSUS FACULTY WHO HELPED ME: My advisor Wolfgang Hinck and teachers Karen James and Janet Goode helped me tremendously in my time at LSUS.

HOW LSUS HELPED ME SUCCEED: The smaller classes and higher level of involvement because of the smaller classes helped me stay focused and accountable for my studies!


ADVICE TO SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO ENTER MY FIELD:  Marketing/Business is a great field to enter; it is very versatile and there is so much to do with.  My biggest piece of advice is network- you never know when someone you've met can help you in your career down the road.  

TIPS ON CHOOSING A MAJOR/CAREER:  Do what you want- no one else is going to be doing your job for you after you graduate, so why should you listen to what others think in your major/career decisions?

I'VE LEARNED THIS FROM LIFE:  Life is short, you can't stress over the small things!  

WHAT I'D BE DOING IF I HAD ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD:  If I had all the time in the world (and funds of course) I would travel the whole entire globe.  I am slowly working my way through Europe now, but I really want to explore Australia, Africa, Asia, everywhere... there are so many different ways of life, I think it is important to understand and embrace cultures outside of your own.
