Kat Page G'12, M.Ed. in ESSS/HPDP
"Through working with the Career Center, I was able to figure out a new plan that actually worked for me. My career counselor made me feel comfortable and helped me clarify which path I wanted to follow after graduation. With a file cabinet filled with practical handouts, focused individual attention and consistent encouragement, the staff gave me the ultimate career preparation experience. The services provided by the Career Center equipped me with the confidence and ability to land my very first career as a federal employee. Mock interviews, weekly appointments, resume development, connecting with alumni in my area of interest, salary negotiations, and even making my final decision to accept a position with the Department of Veterans Affairs as a Veterans Service Representative, were conducted with the guidance of my wonderful career counselor. I also even won a free lunch through their monthly drawing and was granted a fifty dollar stipend towards my career advancement with their Professional Development Scholarship. Such a positive experience has now connected me as an alumnus to help future undecided students who may be interested in pursuing careers with the government."
