David Robertson is a 20-year-old third-year senior originally from Queens, New York, though he just moved to Bethpage, New York. David is a true Honors student, majoring in Business Management and graduating early. “My parents gave me the opportunity to go to a great high school, St. Francis Prep, in Fresh Meadows, New York,” David attributes to his success. While in high school, David took Honors and AP classes which gave him 29 college credits as an entering first-year student. Technically, David entered college as a sophomore.
David is very academically oriented. He’s a member of the Honors College, a Lubin Leader, a member of Alpha Chi National Honor Society, and a member of Sigma Iota Epsilon (a management fraternity). David was also President of The Golden Key International Honour Society from fall 2004 to fall 2005, when he attended one of their regional conferences.
In the fall of 2004, David, who is registered with Co-Op, received a notice about a job offer at Genesco Sports Enterprises, a sports marketing consulting and activation company located in Purchase, NY. “I went in for an interview and received the internship two weeks later,” he recalls. “I have been working there since October of 2004 and have had an unbelievable time.” GSE has clients such as Pepsi and Mastercard, among other big names, and handles these clients relationships with leagues such as the MLB and the NBA. “I currently work on Pepsi/Sierra Mist's Major League Baseball and Major League Soccer accounts. We help put together programs on the local, regional, and national levels to drive volume for our clients’ business.” That’s not all he does, though. “I also assist in talent procurement, in which I work with sports agents and athletes to secure sports figures for our clients to use for appearances, speaking engagements, and more. I help secure these athletes and also attend the appearances on behalf of our clients.” David has been offered a full-time position and will begin working in June.
“I've really enjoyed my time here at Pace,” David says. “I have made some great friends and have had the privilege of learning from some great professors. I want to praise Co-Op and Career Services for the work that they do and helping me find such a great job. I know that my education here will help me in the real world.”
