Hello, Northeastern! My name is Amy. I am honored, humbled, and ridiculously excited to be one of the very first NU Career Services student bloggers! I’ll be writing about the inside scoop on how students can use the (free!) Career Services resources (right on campus!) to prepare for post-grad success.
So what have I learned about career development? Well, I’m nearing my ninth month working with Career Services. I finished a six-month co-op as Employer Relations Coordinator in June 2013, and now I’m working as a marketing intern. In my time here so far, I’ve met dozens of employers, learned the ins and outs of working with career advisors, staffed career fairs, and even sat on a hiring committee…you know, the works. Even without all that fun stuff, I’ve learned so much about career building just by breathing the same air as my advising and employer relations colleagues that I say hi to every day.
I’m here to dish out all the tricks I’ve discovered (lucky you)! Stay tuned for more posts from me every other Wednesday!
