Brian McMahon, 28, is a lot like others in his generation. He graduated from college and immediately started an internship. His thought at the time was: Build a resume, learn something new, gain some exposure, and leave after about a year.
But things change, especially when one sees potential.
McMahon, who has a degree in finance, began working as an intern at Fleet Advantage, a Florida-based truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing and lifecycle cost management firm, back in 2010. He was the company’s first intern and is now a full-time financial analyst there. He was hired full-time after serving a year as an intern and worked in operations and pricing before taking on his current position.
