About me

I am one of two Career Services Associates (with a focus on ESL students) at Capital Community College. I received my B.A. in Global Studies with double minors in Spanish and Music from Salve Regina University. Eventually, I would like to dedicate my time working in multicultural programming, study abroad programs, or something similar. Along with this goal, my hope is to obtain a master's in higher education administration/student affairs down the line. 


higher education, multicultural programming, & diversity/equity/inclusion


I learned that WBL programs are a way to meld together academic learning with experiences in the real world in real-time.


Follow-ups are a great way to express thanks/appreciation for everyone involved and to reflect on how the event went.


Coordination and communication between employers and campus is important for things to run smoothly. This includes information gathering on both sides, activity preparation (resume workshops, etc.), and other element your campus might need for a successful event.


Planning months in advance can avoid most if not all issues later on. It allows you to figure out budgeting needs, marketing plans, staffing needs, and other important needs for the event.

Actively involving all departments and individuals and effective communication will lead to more successful and positive fair events.

The way you approach any situation and person can be helpful or be a hindrance to what the goal is. So it's important to think carefully about how you will help offset any problems that arise in the workplace (how you behave towards superiors, coworkers, and customers/clients alike).


I appreciate that it addressed many common scenarios from multiple perspectives (interviewer, interviewee, etc.). 


Organization is key when it comes to sorting out potential references (creating lists, sorting out relevant contacts, etc.) to have for a job application. 


Networking and keeping track of leads are key factors in a successful job search process.


Distance learning, while it has been around for a while, is growing even more important than ever. Just as coaches would customize tools/resources to their student/client in-person, it is equally important for them to consider what tools/resources would lead to success in a distance learning setting.
