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

I have been able to network with a lot more people since joining the CCD, and I feel more comfortable talking to people in general. I really enjoy having conversations with other students about their professional goals and how I can help them reach those goals. I have become a better listener and I feel like I can also teach students and impart information in a more effective way. The career coaches at the CCD have also helped me to develop concrete professional goals and action steps I should take to accomplish those goals during my undergraduate career and post-graduation.

What are your future career goals?

I hope to work in a Human Resource department for a major company in Connecticut, and I would also like to get an MBA.

What would you say to a student who has never visited the Center for Career Development before?

We have lots of different resources to help you out, no matter where you are on your career journey. It’s okay if you don’t know what you want to do, or if you don’t have a major. Come see us, we will help you out in whatever way we can.
