CAREER SERVICES COUNSELOR

Primary duties and responsibilities 

Counsel students and alumni on issues related to career planning. This may include job search strategies, discussing interview etiquette/strategies, and developing other career related documentation such as resumes and cover letters. Teach career classes and help with career fairs, presentations, and other career-related events.

One piece of advice to job seekers

Start early and make sure you are prepared. Don't be afraid to get help from others; set up an appointment to review your resume, cover letter, and practice your interview skills. The more practice you have the better you will do!

If you weren't a Career Services professional, what would you be?

I have experience as a school counselor, so perhaps working with students in that capacity. I could see myself pursuing a creative career—maybe interior design or teaching music.
