“P&G gives me an edge I couldn’t get anywhere else”
Molly, Global Fabric Care Fabric Enhancers and Heavy Duty Liquid Platform cost analyst
My name is Molly, and I graduated from Purdue University in May 2009 with a B.S in Accounting and Industrial Management with an engineering focus. I have been with P&G for three years and am in my third role with the company as the Global Fabric Care Fabric Enhancers and Heavy Duty Liquid Platform cost analyst.
My first opportunity with P&G was the Finance Accounting & Tax Seminar (FACT) held in August 2007. Attending FACT gave me the chance to learn more about key roles at P&G directly from the people who do the work. It also helped me to define success at P&G and find out how to best prepare for the internship interview at the end of the seminar. Overall, it was a great opportunity to better understand a Fortune 500 company, as well as some of the specificities of a P&G career.
Until attending FACT, I didn’t have any experience or an understanding of corporate finance. The seminar not only gave me that understanding but also provided me with an edge over my college peers who had not had such interaction with business leadership. Also, it was refreshing to listen to P&G employees who were passionate, not only about their career but P&G as a company. This interaction helped me realize P&G is a good fit for me as I looked for a company which provided career variety, community interaction, and employee development both professionally and personally.
