When I graduated from a four-year STEM program without a job, I felt frustrated and lost. Fortunately, I found Career Resource Center through some family friends. In my first few weeks as a member, the resources at Career Resource Center gave me the direction, focus, and tools I’ve needed in the job search. It’s a supportive community — from the Executive Director, who always wants to chat when I visit, all the way to the other shy introverts I’ve met at casual networking events. My advisor, the workshops, and the tutors have all been instrumental in turning the scary prospect of being a first-time job seeker into an empowering and exciting time in my life. I used to be such a skeptic about job searching and networking, but the people here have not only shown me how effective I can be as my own agent, but have taught me tools and confidence to advance my young career.
Having being employed with one company for the past 18 years, the job search market place has drastically changed. Career Resource Center is providing me with the skills, tools, and knowledge to be successful in finding my next position.
