How have you personally used and benefitted from the Center for Career Development?

Ever since freshman year, the Center for Career Development has been an incredible resource. From individualized resume critiques to Husky Career Link to practice interviews, the CCD has helped me settle into the idea of my place in the professional world. Being able to work as a Career Intern is an amazing opportunity and I look forward to learning something new every day on the job.

What are your future career goals?

I want to explore different fields throughout my career, but the ultimate goal is to work for a non-profit organization.

What are some other extracurricular activities that you are involved in? 

I’m a music director and social media manager for my a cappella group, Notes Over Storrs, and I also sing in UConn Choirs small ensemble Collegium Musicum. I’m a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, an honor society on campus, and I work at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts.

What is something unique about you?

I’m the only Clarice at UConn!
