" The Finance Rotational Program jumpstarted my career and was an amazing opportunity to learn about several aspects of corporate finance. Graduating with a degree in math and economics, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in the corporate side of finance, I just did not know where I wanted to focus. Through several rotations including the planning and capital market groups, I learned that I really enjoy helping the organization plan for the future, whether it was creating the next year’s budget or placing new bonds and refinancing the company’s capital structure. I cannot think of another place where I could have been so impactful and exposed to senior management this early in my career.” " - Jason Kyle , Analyst, Finance Rotational Program, C&S Wholesale Grocers (St. Lawrence'13)
" C&S is fully committed to employee growth and development. The Finance Rotational Program is a great learning opportunity for any business major graduate or young professional. It is designed to keep you challenged and provides experience leading to a successful career path. It is also a great way to network. You’ll not only develop relationships with each department where you rotate, but you will also have mentors to guide you through the program. Once you become familiar with the work, any idea on process improvement are highly valued. And contributions will be rewarded. So if you are eager to learn, ambitious and hardworking, this is the program for you. " - Yimeng Huo , Finance Rotational Program, C&S Wholesale Grocers (Wake Forest’10)
