Upcoming Events at VSU
Nothing from July 21, 2019 to October 21, 2019.
Cheryl Glover, PHR, SHRM-CP, ‘98
Human Resources Manager, Atlanta, GA
I was immediately drawn to the culture during the interview process.
Draffin & Tucker offers a rewarding, as well as fun, place to work that not only looks after the ‘bottom-line’ but also its people. The company treats you like you are part of the family and genuinely care about your personal goals and success. You are not just a number at D&T!
The company strives for a friendly, team-oriented atmosphere and provides a caring and supportive attitude to all employees.
What I like about Atlanta is that it is a city of small towns. Beyond all the big city attractions, is a number of neighborhoods with distinctively different personalities. You can have the conveniences of big city living without all of the hustle and bustle.
I have fond memories of VSU and I try to get back for homecoming as much as possible.
Eric T. Gouthier, ‘15
Senior Accountant, Norman, OK
I wanted my work to be in an industry that benefited society.
The challenges and fluidity of the healthcare industry had always interested me in that regard. Based on those interests, D&T was recommended by faculty and other students.
Draffin & Tucker is the most facilitating environment for growth I have ever been a part of. From staff to partners, I feel comfortable coming to anyone with a question or concern I might have. The culture at D&T made the transition from student to professional enjoyable and rewarding.
The great thing about living in Atlanta is accessibility. From concerts and shows to restaurants, it’s either in Atlanta or coming to Atlanta. Venturing out and trying new restaurants or listening to good live music is a matter of hopping in the car.
I take my VSU coffee cup with me when I travel out of town and have met VSU alumni all over the region. We have a pretty good representation, here in Atlanta, with window stickers as well.
Justin Hall, ‘10
Director of Outsourced Accounting, Albany, GA
I chose Draffin & Tucker because of the D&T culture. Everyone I met during the recruiting process was friendly and professional.
I was born and raised in Albany. My family and I like to visit Chehaw Park, a local zoo, and the Flint RiverQuarium, a local aquarium.
Also, I like how Albany is in a centralized location. You can drive 3 hours north to Atlanta, 3 hours Southeast to Jacksonville, FL, and 3 hours south to Panama City, FL.
