“It’s important to be involved on campus and in the community so you can make an impact while you are here.”
Supply Chain Management - Student
For Haslam College of Business senior Jane Axhoj, involvement has been key to her success as an undergraduate student. While pursuing a degree in supply chain management, the Charlotte, NC, native has balanced a variety of responsibilities including athletics, study abroad, volunteer activities and serving as Miss North Carolina USA.
“If I’m not doing a lot, I find more to do,” Axhoj said. “It’s important to be involved on campus and in the community so you can make an impact while you are here.”
When she began her experience at UT, Axhoj quickly began filling her schedule. She kicked off her student career with the UT dance team. She also is a member of the Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity and volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
Her junior year, Axhoj took her international business concentration and French minor to the next level by participating in a study abroad opportunity in France. She attended KEDGE Business School in Bordeaux, easily transferring her class credits back to the U.S. for her major and minor.
Axhoj said her experiences at Haslam have given her confidence as she makes plans for her future.
“I feel very prepared,” she said. “I highly recommend that students take advantage of Haslam’s resources and make the most of these opportunities.”
In addition to activities and study abroad, internships connected the classroom and the work world, giving her the boost needed to land her preferred job. This fall, Axhoj will begin working in customer supply chain with the L’Oréal Group in Rhode Island. She interned with the company last summer and was thrilled to receive an offer to begin working with L’Oréal after graduation.
“I love the company and the culture,” said Axhoj. “It’s a perfect fit.”
Prior to beginning her work with L’Oréal, she will compete for the title of Miss USA 2020. She also plans to continue her work with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. While these activities will keep her schedule packed this summer, she is looking forward to fall.
“I’m excited to move to Rhode Island and begin the next chapter in my career,” Axhoj said. “I’m looking forward to connecting with alumni after I move and coming back to Knoxville to cheer on the Vols. I love UT. It’s been an incredible experience.”
