Senior Career Services Consultant

HOW DID YOU GET  HERE? I studied Business Management at Savannah State University in Savannah, GA and then went to USC Columbia in Columbia, SC and received an MEd in Higher Education and Student Affairs. I conducted several informational interviews upon the second semester of graduate school and landed my job at Purdue through this experience. I had been working at the Career Center at USC and fell in love with the profession, so it was a natural progression to look for jobs in the field! I am so glad I did and have been happily working at Purdue ever since! 

 

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT WORKING AT THE CCO? I love the culture of the office: fun-loving, caring, and hardworking!
