Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille
Hello, fellow Spartans! My name is Tori Wantz '21. I am a junior Marketing major at York College and this is my first year on Roadcrew. For those of you who have kept up with our travels over the last three weeks, we have been to so many great places and had so many opportunities.
Today we visited Brooks Walter '12 at the Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille headquarters in Colombia, Maryland. Brooks graduated in 2012 and studied Marketing and Public Relations during his time at York. Brooks encouraged us to take a chance once we graduate to one day land our dream job because the experience will only set us up for success.
Upon our visit, we learned some more about the alumnus and received some helpful career advice. We were then able to ask questions pertaining to his career which had a big impact on business students like me. Brooks stressed the importance of internships and work experience. Both of these not only help students figure out how they want to spend the rest of their life but also lay a foundation that many hiring managers are looking for.
Our experience at Greene Turtle gave many of us on Road Crew insightful knowledge of the business world, especially within the restaurant industry. I had a wonderful experience learning about alumni like Brooks through the SpartaNation journey this year!
