Student Testimonials

Retail Banking Analyst at PNC

 “The most valuable skills I learned from TSF are persistence, trust, confidence, and learning how to connect with people. When calling on the phone, you learn how to approach people in the correct manner. You also learn how to display transparency and build relationships with prospects. Being persistent and confident is what leads you to success.”

Merchant Analyst at Bealls

“I was looking for a job that would teach me skills such as Project Management. I worked at TSF for a little over a year and worked on several different campaigns. I started these campaigns at different stages and witnessing the procedures change and being made aware of the effects of those changes in weekly meetings were the best part.”

Research Coordinator at UF

“If anyone is interested in learning about sales, which several different fields deal with, then an internship at TSF would be a great fit for them. The greatest part is the leadership team, as they are all intelligent, passionate, and eager to help you grow. It’s a great stepping stone in your career, especially if you want to start your career at large companies like Oracle.”
