Career Advice: “Make time for what is important to you. People are very busy on campus and often say “but I don’t have time for this.” If you are looking for an opportunity through Career Services, like an externship, internship, etc., try and make time. Carve out a place in your schedule where you can dedicate an hour or whatever time to search, ask questions, email or call, and never be afraid to ask for help. The Career Services Staff is here for you!”

Career Advice: “Not every internship or externship experience will be a good one. But you have to realize, that even though you may not be having the time of your life or doing exactly what you had wanted or planned to, there is so much more to be learned. Take note of what you are learning about your career preferences from what you dislike, and this will help you have better experiences in the future.”

Career Advice: “When pursuing your career goals, do not allow your decisions to be swayed by other people’s interests. The decisions you make must not make anyone happy but yourself because it is your life and it is your choice to do whatever you have passion for. Follow your heart, do what you love and without a doubt, I know that you will be a success in anything you do.”


Allana doyle ’20

Career Advice: “My advice would be to make an effort because how much time and energy you put into looking for internships or jobs will reflect in the opportunities that you will have. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes because this is the time to learn and grow.”
