Alumni Spotlight – Alyssa White, Fisher Investments

Eller PDC Coordinator Alumni Stories

Alyssa White graduating in May 2017 with a major in Marketing. Currently, Alyssa is working at Fisher Investments as an Account Executive in Camas, Washington.

Why did you choose to work for Fisher Investments? As a senior, I really had no idea what I wanted to do after school.  I appreciated that Fisher Investments encouraged me to keep an open mind and challenge myself.

Tell us about your job responsibilities and title. I began my career as an Account Executive and I recently transitioned into the Talent Acquisition Associate role in the Human Capital Department.  I am the primary point of contact for our candidates going through the interview process for our sales team.

What do you enjoy most about working at Fisher Investments? My favorite thing about Fisher investments is the relationships I’ve made with my coworkers.  It’s completely open pod seating which has allowed me to become close with not only my peers, but also my managers who I’ve learned so much from.  It’s nice to have a Fisher Family being so far away from home.

What is your fondest Eller memory? My favorite Eller memory was getting close with my cohort and walking over to University after class everyday senior year to get pizza at No Anchovies.
