Darcy Williams, Finance

To call Darcy Williams driven would be an understatement. In her almost four years at USF, the business honors student has successfully completed five internships and received three full-time job offers.

She completed an undergraduate thesis analyzing the pandemic’s impact on commercial real estate performance and trends and presented the findings at the 2022 Undergraduate Research Conference.

Williams has held numerous leadership positions within Phi Chi Theta, a professional business fraternity. As the vice president of recruitment for the chapter, she had the overwhelming task of growing membership during the pandemic. Once in-person activities resumed, she put into action a strategic recruitment plan and membership jumped by 91 percent.

She is also a stand-out when it comes to mentoring her peers as a student assistant in the Muma College of Business’ Collier Student Success Center. She started working at the center during her final semester at USF because she wanted to help others.

“I meet with students one on one to help them revise their resumes, prepare for interviews, and navigate the daunting job and internship search. It has been my favorite and most gratifying job by far,” she said.

After graduation, she heads to North Carolina to start a job as an institutional sales analyst with Barings, an international investment management firm with over $382 billion in assets under management.

She says she’s had “four amazing years” at USF and is beyond proud to call herself a Bull. And in a few weeks, she will call herself a proud alumna.
