Thank you for checking out The CWIB Chronicles! We hope you all are having a fantastic summer; it is hard to believe that there is only one month left until the first day of classes! This summer has been flying by, but don’t worry; if you missed anything from The CWIB Chronicles this July, here is all the information you need to know.

CWIB Chronicles Articles:


Work Bag Essentials – In Abby’s article, she interviews CWIB members to get the scoop on what items you should always keep in your work bag. Ranging from neutral lipstick to band-aids, and even business cards, I made sure to put a few of these items into my own personal bag. If you are looking for a way to feel prepared and confident at work, give this one a read!

#FeatureFriday – Check out these posts showcasing your fellow CWIB members:


Not only is Heather Sangalang rocking it as the Editor-in-Chief of The CWIB Chronicles, but she is also working as an Internal Audit & Financial Advisory Intern for Protiviti this summer. We are so proud of her for working to serve her clients with her team at Protiviti and leading her own team here at The CWIB Chronicles!

Tori Pollard will be making a difference as well by having the time of her life this summer in La Marche, Italy! A rising junior, she will be a camp counselor there for about five weeks and one of her duties includes teaching children how to speak English. We can’t wait to hear about her adventures!


Sydney Woodward is making the most of her summer! She has used her networking skills to secure an externship with Yeskie Buie, a financial planning firm, where she will be shadowing a fellow Hokie in August. In the meantime, she will be working as a bank teller for Union Bank. This finance major knows how to prepare!

CWIB members, you are going to hear Rajni Kapania’s name a lot this year because she is our new VP of Membership! A rising senior, this summer she is working as a marketing intern for Actualize Consulting in McLean, Virginia. Her summer isn’t all work though, she is also an officer for the Student Hip Hop Legacy.

#MotivationMonday – Glance back at the quotes that have been keeping us motivated this July!

As we head into August, get ready to receive a couple of newsletters filled with exciting information as we prepare to begin the 2018-2019 school year!
