Helping People

Day to Day

Every day, I start out by going through all of my emails to answer any questions from students. Then I input information about the attendees from our Career Development Center's latest event so that students can stay connected with all of our upcoming events and opportunities. I also meet with students to answer questions about resumes, cover letters, and upcoming job and internship interviews. I currently also approve student internship applications to get them registered in their courses.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for high school students

I would suggest getting involved in as many activities and volunteer opportunities as possible to figure out what it is that brings you the most joy. Taking action to put yourself out there helps you make new friends, meet mentors, and develop the confidence that will help you on your career path and throughout all other areas of your life. You learn new things and become well-rounded by opening yourself up to a variety of experiences. Each experience gets you that much closer to your own path.
