Name: Audrey Garcia       Pronouns: She/Her/Hers

Year: Junior       Major: Communication       Hometown: Bethel, CT  

How have you personally used and benefitted from the Center for Career Development? The Center for Career Development has changed the way that I look at a résumé. Through both having my own résumé critiqued and the intern training process, I have been exposed to a wealth of information about how to best market myself for future endeavors. Information services aside, I have met some truly kind and supportive people, and I am thankful to be a part of this team!  

What are your future career goals? As a communication major, there are so many different career paths where I can use my degree! I am pursuing an internship in management consulting this Summer, and will hopefully continue in consulting after graduation.  

What are some extracurricular activities you are involved in? I am a brother and an Initiate Advisor of the Beta Pi chapter of Phi Sigma Pi, which is a national honor fraternity. I love to hang out with Beta Pi, it’s a super fun group! I am also a member of the National Communication Association Honor Society, Lambda Pi Eta. 

What is something unique about you? I love to read in my free time, especially outside on a warm day. I read 25 books in 2021, and I’m always trying to beat that record!

What would you say to a student who has never visited the Center for Career Development before? It can be intimidating to think about your future, especially while talking to someone you might not have met before. Think of the career center as your neutral third party to help you make those tough decisions about what jobs to pursue, what grad programs to apply for, or how to negotiate! It’s nice to get an outside perspective to help you break down the big questions that lie ahead. The entire staff is here to help you in any way that we can.
