One piece of advice to job seekers
Take advantage of the programs and services that are available to you. Work hard and have fun, but remember why you are here. Most importantly, take ownership of your education, your career and your future.
If you weren’t a Career Services professional, what would you be?
I would probably still be teaching in the Safety and Environmental Management program at the College of Engineering and Mineral Resources. My dream job would be to host an outdoor hunting and fishing show.
