 During her time at VEGA, she worked in the Inside Sales department and supported the Marketing department as well, working on number of research projects targeting customer classification, entry data, updating invoice requirements, and collaborating with the Canadian office. 

Pamela described her experience at VEGA Americas as a very fulfilling and rewarding opportunity “VEGA is an international company that understands the importance of diversity and inclusivity inside and out the company, therefore I made connections with people from different parts of the world, building my perspective and making me realize that my ability to speak two languages was an asset”.  

Maintaining a 3.57 GPA, Pamela earned a spot on the Dean’s List. She credits the co-op program, support from her advisor, and VEGA for providing valuable insights into the business world, preparing her for a successful career in Marketing after graduation.
