What advice would you give other students?
“Network yourself with faculty and students and take advantage of all of the services that the college has to offer. Always network because you never know when faculty or classmates could help to provide job opportunities. Be sure to utilize college services that are available such as Barbara Roback in Career Services, as she can help you appear more attractive as a job candidate.”
