While at UMass Lowell I attended many workshops and met with the career counselors regularly. I attended a LinkedIn Workshop, the Career Cafes for resumes and interviewing, as well as Career Fairs that landed me several interviews. During one-on-one career counseling appointments, I received great career advice, refined my resume, and practiced interviewing.
Currently, I am a Client Support Specialist at Intercontinental Exchange where I handle many business analysis tasks as well as gain a lot of project management skills.
Because of the Career & Co-op Center, I have been able to fine tune my interview skills, revamp my resume, and got my dream job in the field of business analysis and project management. Ultimately, in the future, I would like to excel in various business fields, have a team of my own or have my own firm to become an entrepreneur.
Students should utilize all the services of the Career & Co-op Center and prepare for their job/internship ahead of time; at least six months in advance.
