How did you gain experience when you were a student?  

I had numerous on-campus jobs throughout my time as an undergraduate student. These on-campus employment opportunities allowed me to easily work around my classes, build up my employment history, and learn some great baseline skills.

How did you become a career development professional? 

I received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design. After a season of graphic design jobs and freelance opportunities, my design career took a pause when I chose to stay at home with my young children. Once my kids entered school, I started looking for new career opportunities. Career Services has allowed me to take on numerous roles in the office and learn so much about how we facilitate career connections between Huskers and the world. My time at Career Services has allowed me to assist many different groups of people, ranging from students, faculty & staff, and employers all over the world.

Who is someone who impacted your career development? 

My senior year graphic design professors were instrumental in helping me learn how to develop my resume and design portfolio. This preparation was instrumental in gaining my first job out of college as a graphic designer for an athletic-wear company.
