Office Assistant

Major: English

Hometown: Stockton, CA

Hobbies: Blogging, working out and spending quality time with friends and family

I believe that university's career centers are vital to a student's success post-graduation. Pacific's Career Resource Center is no different. The counselors are always hard at work to ensure current Pacific students and alumni are well informed and prepared for their professional careers. I have become so much more educated and feel more prepared upon my graduation in Spring 2015.

I was once lost and did not know which career path I wanted to take with an English degree. The wonderful staff was able to sit with me and helped figure out the countless opportunities that would be open to me, as long as I was persistent and hardworking. I have developed and improved my interpersonal and communication skills through the Career Fairs and Mock Interviews.

I'm glad to have a position at the CRC which not only uses my designs all over campus, but also to work in a place that allows me to learn professionalism for later career experiences.
