Music Therapy Major
Having my appointment online via zoom was incredibly easy. I was able to speak “face to face” with Jen while seeing having my resume be edited in real time. At the end I had my newly edited resume sent to me making the stressful process of editing a resume easy as pie!

Career services met my needs by simply having a lot of information to provide and useful tips I will remember when applying for internships and job opportunities. They also provided different sources for me to use when looking for internships and were willing to answer any questions I had.
Hannah Teter ’20
Elementary Education Major
I had a mock interview with Amanda Dixon the day before my first interview with a local school. Amanda put my mind at ease and helped me better prepare for my interview. My interview was conducted through Zoom, so it was especially helpful for the mock interview to be conducted this way as well. I was offered the job just a few days after this interview!

I had the opportunity to work directly with Jen Spataro-Wilson in order to review and update my current resume. Jen is extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to creating a professional resume. The virtual setting worked very well with screen-sharing capabilities and we were able to update my resume quickly and efficiently. I highly recommend setting up an appointment with the Career Services team!
Christina Lolis ’22
MBA, Healthcare Management Certificate
The information and speakers was eye opening. I felt some apprehension about applying for an internship because of the COVID 19 complications. I now feel that it will not be such a big issue and I was given information that will allow me to apply for an internship in healthcare management. I originally was going to apply for a range of different internships but I feel that I can narrow it down to one that I am very interested in. Having the meeting virtually was very convenient and I was able to interact and receive information just as well as it would have been in person. Thank you Career Services!!

Jen was able to meet with me weekly to keep me motivated on my job search during the crisis that shut the country down. She helped me find appropriate job searching databases and improve my LinkedIn profile. She edited cover letters and helped me find the best words to say what I wanted to say. The regular virtual meetings I had with Jen helped me find and be offered a job is the perfect start for my occupational therapy career. Jen and the Career Services staff have been instrumental in helping me with my job search!

I met virtually with Career Services for a mock OT grad school interview. They gave me a list of potential interview questions and we went through them together. My grad school interview went so much smoother because of it!
