I am the Employer Relations and Internship Coordinator at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida. I work to partner with organizations both locally as well as nationwide/international to help provide students with internships and jobs that help shape not only their professional skills but also their perspective on the world.
Aside from my career as a career counselor I also host the podcast “Creating a Career” which is a weekly podcast that interviews professionals in all industries to learn how they created their career as well as have the professional give advice to those that are still in the process of deciding their career.
My mission is to help these individuals both uncover what it is they wish to do for their career and build a road-map to help get them there. My passion is in helping young professionals find clarity, happiness and success in their career. Far too many people hate what they do for a career and feel stuck because they either don’t know what they want to do or how to get there and that has never sat well with me.
My Current Project
The first few years after graduation can be rough. Many feel lost having no idea what they want to do for a career or any idea of how to get to the career path they desire. This book will aim to help recent graduates learn the information necessary to succeed in each aspect of their career. These areas include: Career exploration, how to get the job, understanding money, finding success in the workplace, and common struggles young professionals face.
I’ve developed this work into five sections that I believe are critical to post-college success. In this book I’ll cover the process of career exploration, let’s make sure you have explored your options – and that you know what you full range of options are! Then there’s getting the job and the strategies I suggest to stand out from the crowd. Third is money, how to secure your true value in the workplace and what to do with it for long-term financial security. I then go into the things we need to do to stay successful in our workplace and ensure we’re meeting our career goals. Lastly, I share my experience with what I have recognised as the common struggles to overcome in this environment.
