Tuck Bridge Stories: Madeline Pierce
Maddie Pierce graduated from Middlebury College with an Economics major and Art History minor in 2016. She attended Tuck Bridge in 2015. She is curently a Senior Analyst at Wayfair. This is her Bridge story:
Why did you choose to attend Bridge?
I wanted to supplement my liberal arts education with an intro to business I would not have access to otherwise. I was an economics major, which was the closest I could really get to “business,” which is where I wanted to go.
How did Bridge prepare you for your current position/career trajectory? How did the program help “Bridge Your Future?”
I grew up with parents that worked in marketing and consulting, and I always liked hearing about what they were working on.
How did Bridge help you in your job search?
The alumni network is incredible, particularly the massive network Paul Doscher somehow keeps in his head! In each move I have made for my career I have spoken to at least one Bridge or Tuck alumni. Everyone truly cares about what you are interested in and helping you get there.
Do you have a favorite memory from Tuck Bridge?
One of my favorite memories from Bridge is actually the opportunity I had to come back and speak on a CareerBridge panel. It is really cool to come back and speak to students in your same position just a few years earlier. It was easy to talk to these students because they were curious and well-spoken and I had a sense for what I needed to tell them to best prepare them for the real world.
