"After graduating, I had no idea where I wanted my career to go so I took time and explored various short term opportunities. During the summer, I decided to find a full time career in my industry and was not sure what would be the best way to communicate my unconventional path after graduation. I consulted Debra who gave me confidence during the stressful job hunt and provided extremely helpful details and resources that helped me discover what I want in a job and how to network to find it. Debra is a fantastic resource for any alumni and I highly suggest meeting with her to learn how to take full advantage being a Yellow Jacket.
