Jessie Barclay, MA NCC
CAREER DEVELOPMENT SPECIALIST
Primary duties and responsibilities
Help students explore their interests and possible career options through counseling, teach career-related classes for credit, assist in the developing and formatting of cover letters, resumes, and CVs, conduct mock interviews, teach basic dining and interview etiquette, and assist students with the job search, providing available resources.
One piece of advice to job seekers
All experience is good experience. Think of new ways to see your experience. What did you learn you were capable of? Think of lessons and skills learned instead of a list of computer skills.
If you weren’t a Career Services professional, what would you be?
Appalachian Oral Historian, owner of a vinyl record store, or a florist.
