The Orr Fellowship is a competitive post-graduation opportunity for seniors who seek to become future Indiana business leaders. The two-year program sets out to provide its fellows with an unparalleled professional network and full-time salaried positions where they will continue to learn specific skills in business and leadership. Applications for the fellowship are currently open and will close on October 2, 2015.
Amber Ferrari ’15 became the first Orr Fellow from Marian University after completing the rigorous application and interview process and accepted a position as the associate marketing manager at PactSafe. Within the fellowship, Ferrari is part of the marketing team and is currently working on recruiting next year’s class of Orr Fellows from Marian University.
Ferrari visited campus to speak to several classes and gave a presentation about the fellowship in The Exchange to interested students. Ferrari explained students should apply to be a part of the fellowship because it is an extremely unique experience. “Why wouldn’t you want two years helping to build up the Indy business community, acclimate to the working world, have a full-time, salaried position while still being able to learn? It’s the community of college activities everyone loves, but the professionalism of that real-world atmosphere we have been preparing for throughout the entirety of our education thus far.”
Continuing with recruitment, Ferrari is holding a happy hour at Bud’s Tavern Wednesday, September 16 for Marian University students to hang out and ask questions about the fellowship. Ferrari also strongly encourages students to attend the Indianapolis F-Orr-um, which she describes as the most important pre-interview event to attend. The date, time, and place for the event will be announced within the coming weeks.
“Anyone leaving college and entering the real-world has something positive to offer, but I truly believe that Marian University graduates are made of good stuff. Tough stuff. All the best stuff. We have had an abundance of opportunities to reach out to Indy throughout our college experience and should be excited about getting the chance to continue that professionally. I am so pumped to have additional Knights proudly represent our alma mater in the Orr Fellowship class of 2016.”
