In this series, recent grads share their journey to landing that first job out of college. After years of studying and working toward a degree, these Panthers’ hard work paid off. Now they’re paying it forward by letting you know how they did it.

Name: Blake Gregorisch

Hometown: Miami Lakes, FL

Degree/Major: Bachelor’s degree in computer engineering

Where are you working? Title?

I work for a global technology company called Lenovo as a technical solutions sales engineer. I work specifically with corporate accounts, as the technical advisor/consultant. I’m pulled into technical discussions with customers to position Lenovo’s products over competitors.

How did you get your job?

I got my job after a lengthy interview process that started at an FIU career fair. Several more interviews followed over the ensuing months. Then, an offer followed a week after a Lenovo recruiter offered me a chance to do the final interviews on-site at their U.S. headquarters in North Carolina.
