How have you personally benefited from the Center for Career Development?

I have used the Career Center to improve my resume and cover letter multiple times. I always am able to connect with someone in order to find resources that are applicable to me and the path I’m looking to take. I was introduced to several resources like the Husky Mentor Network, résume critiques, LinkedIn evaluations, and more. In addition, I was able to participate in the Career Leadership Program over the summer which assisted me in learning professional skills. 

What are your future career goals?

Someday I hope to go to law school and become an attorney either in the human rights or criminal defense fields.

What are some extracurricular activities you are involved in?

I am in a sorority on campus and hold the position of HuskyTHON Dancer Representative for my organization, and I write for the online magazine HER Campus. I am also a TME mentor and a member of Empowering Women in Law. I also work as a ski instructor during the winter months at Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont.

What is something unique about you?

I am a telemark skier

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

Take advantage of every resource the center offers to you! The staff will not be able to choose a path for you, but they will do everything in their power to help you find your way professionally in a field you are excited and passionate about. Take advantage of every opportunity and don’t be afraid to ask questions!
