What Makes Your Mobile Lifestyle Easier?
Andrew Szymke is a young man on the go.
His first smart move was to receive an electrical engineering degree from Clemson University. Then he flirted with patent law in Washington D.C., before returning to the Atlanta suburbs. Now, he’s followed in his father’s footsteps as a regional sales manager for a medical device company “I’ve known my whole life.”
Just don’t ask me to explain what he does. Better let Andrew describe that.
“I sell electromyography and electroencephalographs, interacting with physicians and other healthcare providers in a hospital or clinic setting,” he said in an interview.
The first one has something to do with diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome and other entrapments with the nervous system. The second one looks at brain disorders and helps patients with seizure activity. All I know is that Andrew lugs around small suitcases of equipment in the trunk of his car.
And that’s the part of Andrew’s story that most people can identify with: Being “very good friends” with his car. He covers six states in the Southeast and has driven through as many as five states in a single day.
Once, in a social setting, “I was talking to someone from Mississippi and they were talking about some little small town, and I looked at them and I said, ‘I’ve been through that town. I know such and such about it.’ They just looked at me with the most bizarre look because they had never heard of anyone who even knew of their hometown.”
No matter where Andrew travels—through small towns or big cities—he makes money management easy with Schwab Bank’s mobile application and online bill pay.
“The Schwab experience is basically about two things, mobility and security,” he said. “With mobility, I can get to my money, get my information I need anywhere, anytime. With security I know I have a trusted resource, which is always important when dealing with finances.”
Andrew also has high praise for Schwab Bank’s approach to online bill pay.
“I could be in another state and I get an email with my card statement and I can go ahead and just log into my Schwab Bank account, type it in, I’ve already reviewed my statement online, everything looks good and I just make the payment when I’m done. I haven’t received my statement in the mail and my bill is already paid,” he said. “It’s very simple to use. It makes my life much easier.”
And, after all, isn’t that what technology is for?
