Career Spotlight


Sarah Freeman

My name is Sarah Freeman, and I graduated from Georgia Tech with my BS in Neuroscience in May 2020. In the fall of 2020, I will join the Analyst Rotation Program at CarMax’s headquarters in Richmond, Virginia. The program is comprised of three 8-month rotations on different analyst teams at CarMax, such as Marketing, Customer Insights, and Financing. I will apply the analytical skills I gained through the neuroscience program to complex datasets, testing theories about specific business areas, generating predictive models, and influencing corporate strategy and execution. During my interviews with CarMax, I was able to draw on my experience in the neuroscience program to explain why my background made me a great fit for this role. In the future, I hope to build more connections between findings in neuroscience and best practices in business, either through research or continued work in business analytics.
Studying neuroscience at Georgia Tech is fantastic preparation for a career in business analytics, because our courses focus heavily on developing critical thinking and analytical skills. One of the main highlights of the neuroscience program for me was my involvement in Dr. Thackery Brown’s research lab, where I designed and ran my own study on memory from start to finish. This process helped me learn how to drive my own line of inquiry, overcome hurdles in data collection and programming, and answer questions using data. In addition, studying neuroscience has helped me understand human behavior at a deeper level, knowledge that I will be able to apply to the business world to understand customer behavior and motivations. The neuroscience program helped me build communication skills during my time as a Teaching Assistant and helped me secure my summer internship at Simon-Kucher and Partners in 2019, through professional workshops and career advice from my advisors. The skills I have gained at Georgia Tech, combined with the personal mentoring approach taken by our faculty, enabled me to enter the professional world on solid footing and equipped me with resources I will continue to draw on throughout my career.
