Summary

Currently, I am a graduate student studying Human Resources and Labor Relations at the School of Labor and Industrial Relations at Michigan State University. During my first year, I have taken classes that have furthered my knowledge in the areas of Labor Law, International HR systems, and HR strategy. The knowledge and skills I have gained through this graduate program have positioned me for success as I begin a summer internship with Marathon Petroleum Company in St. Paul Park, MN.

Jeff was always extremely detail oriented in all projects he took on while at Domino's. He was constantly looking for proactive ways to improve processes and ways to get involved in different HR areas.

In addition to Jeff being a stellar student, he was my undergraduate learning assistant (TA) and did an outstanding job. He was committed to the classroom experience for students, providing the current event each week and offered a valuable perspective throughout the semester. Jeff assisted individual students in mastering the material and to be successful with each assignment and exam. Jeff has a tremendous work ethic and excellent communication skills. Without hesitation, I give Jeff my highest recommendation.
