Erika Koeniger is a recent graduate of Northeastern University and currently works the front desk for Whitman Associates, Inc. During her time at Northeastern, Erika was actively involved in research at the Social Impact Lab, was the VP of Philanthropy within the Sigma Kappa Sorority, and played on the Combat Wombat broomball team. While attending school, Erika had the opportunity to intern with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the United States Air Force Office of Readiness, and the Fairfax County Office of Emergency Management. All of these internships sparked her desire to work in the area of Emergency Management. To fulfill this desire she realized her next step was to attend graduate school.
While waiting for graduate school to start in the fall and to fuel a major chai latte addiction, Erika realized she needed to get a job. However, few agencies were willing to employ someone for a few months, which is when Erika turned to Whitman for help. After her initial interview, Erika was offered a job staffing the front desk. Now she enjoys supporting the Whitman team by answering phones, updating records, and checking references. She is considered by some in the office to be the fastest alphabetizer in the company’s history! Overall, she is happy Whitman Associate, Inc. took a chance to hire her and will miss the camaraderie of the staff once she leaves for graduate school.
