Abraham has also received awards such as the Triumph Enterprises Synergy Award, Triumph Core Value Award and Triumph New Employee of the Year Award during his time at Triumph Enterprises in McLean, Virginia.
The advice that Abraham has for future students is: “Build a network and build your own personal brand. Attend career fairs and get your name out there. Use resources such as career services, career fairs and business symposiums. You have the benefit of going to a small school where you are not just a name and number. Take full advantage of that and get to know your professors and classmates.”
