Last year, Grant Sittig spent the summer serving as an intern with Jabil Circuit, where he rotated, in month-long stints, through the firm’s business operations. He processed invoices, helped prepare technical documents alongside Jabil’s SEC Reporting and Technical Team, and performed internal audits. Before his internship concluded, the firm extended an invitation for him to spend another summer as an intern in the financial services areas.
Prior to his internship with Jabil, the company reached out to Sittig, who has volunteered with several charitable organizations in the area, and asked him to spearhead a philanthropy project: to assist a foster home over the holidays. He was lauded for his efforts to provide presents for 225 children who would otherwise go without gifts.
Sittig is one of just two people from the Tampa market invited to participate in PriceWaterhouseCooper’s National Leadership Adventure. This prestigious program challenges participants to immerse themselves in activities that will help get them get out of their comfort zone and prepare them for leadership roles.
With just two semesters left in his accounting program, Sittig, who is also a member of the USF Honors College, has his eyes set on being named a USF King O’Neal Scholar. Honoring USF’s first two graduates, this designation is bestowed upon undergraduates who complete their USF coursework with a 4.0 grade point average.
