Adam Lipsmeyer, who graduated with a BA in Economics in 2013, began his career with Placer County as an intern with the Placer County Water Agency during the summer before his senior year at Chico State. As an intern for Placer County he assisted in the development of budgets, provided assistance in accounting, conducted research and collected data to create reports, maintained investment statistics, and participated in departmental and agency wide meetings.

Although he was working part time as an undergraduate, Adam found time to participate in student organizations. He was president of the Economics Club at Chico State during his senior year. In this position he assisted the chair in bringing in speakers and advertising club events. He was also a member of the Enactus Student Organization that helped 5 th and 6 th graders develop entrepreneurial skills that allow them to design, finance, and sell their products at Chico’s Farmers’ Market.

Adam interned for Franklin Templeton Investment during his senior year. “My internship at FTI helped strengthen my analytic, communication and organizational skills. Two significant projects that I worked on include the development of a disaster recovery plan for business continuity and the development of new workflows with procedural documentation.”
