Associate of Arts
After completing her service in the Ohio Army National Guard, Rebecca Barrett started in the Associate of Arts program at Cincinnati State with plans to transfer to a four-year college afterward. When it came time to fulfill her co-op requirements, Rebecca attended a co-op orientation session where she learned about Procter & Gamble’s SuccessWay Co-op Program. She applied that evening for a co-op position; three weeks later she received an offer to work for the Talent Supply unit in P&G’s Human Resource Department.
During her first co-op term she worked as a Recruiting Specialist, which helped her to sharpen her communication skills and led her to develop an interest in report analytics. In her next co-op assignment at P&G, Rebecca was responsible for running and analyzing sales reports, as well as office management.
“Before I began my co-op I had never thought of beginning a career at age 21, but now I have the opportunity to do just that,” she said.
After graduating, Rebecca relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to start a full-time job as a Business Unit Analyst for a P&G sales team working with North America’s Dollar General.
