My name is David Merriman and I'm a senior at Ithaca College where I am a Business Administration major with concentrations in finance and management with a minor in economics. Strong analytical, leadership and quantitative skills are some of my most beneficial characteristics. Through my business, finance, and economic courses, I have developed strong proficiency in these areas and look forward to the opportunity to further cultivate my ability through a challenging and rigorous professional experience. My interest in business reflects my commitment to maximizing the potential of every opportunity, but it is my academic achievements, intellectual capital, previous employment experiences , and character that make me a worthy candidate for any position. I am confident that I can apply the same skills that have made me successful in my previous educational, extracurricular and career pursuits as I begin my professional journey.
