During his time at DePaul, Gordon has been studying Business and Finance, and is also looking into getting his real estate license after he graduates. "I honestly don't know why I chose to do business, but I knew I wanted to do real estate eventually, so I thought thought I would need a background in how money works," said Gordon. Getting deeper into the finance major, Gordon found himself enjoying his classes like accounting, and he felt that everything just came to him naturally.
To keep busy in recent weeks and gain experience, Gordon has been completing a Summer Internship with the Christian Brothers Investment Services, furthering his work in the financial and accounting industry. Looking ahead, Gordon is going to work with the DePaul career center to figure out his career path post-grad in the finance world.
