Where: Rockwell Collins, Cedar Rapids, IA
Major: Accounting and Management
Brooke interned at Rockwell Collins, a company that designs, produces, and supports innovative solutions for customers in aerospace and defense. Her main project was to make a dynamic calendar for the Annual Operating Plan using Excel Macros and writing basic code to create the calendar that recognizes dates and deadlines. The project allowed her to gain insight into the entire operating plan at Rockwell Collins, and how each department depends on others to run smoothly. She was also able to job shadowmany different positions. She realized that an accounting major would enable her to have many career options, even within the same company. Brooke learned how important communication is in the workplace, and if you aren’t sure about something, it is perfectly fine to ask questions!
