Confessions of a College Liaison

“I never had to study in high school”. “My high school did not prepare me for college-level work”. These are two of the most common phrases I hear from the students I work with on a regular basis. As a College Liaison, I work with students who are referred to the Student Success Center for any number of reasons.

Job Fairs - The Hidden Job Market

Never would I see myself getting my bachelor’s and now my master’s. It was not the path I had in mind. Now that I see the benefits and working as a graduate assistant, I am very happy with the path I am taking.

Seeing Positive Results from Summer Internship in DC

Washington, DC

This week I worked a lot on business development. I looked into various new pieces of legislation and how they could hurt or benefit potential parties. I then looked at which companies we could talk to and try and represent. I looked in depth at their company product or service and create a list of potential points that we could help them solve. I then used the information I found to create a strategy about how to accomplish these goals and land the company as a client.

Washington, DC

The rest of my week was …

Getting the Experience to be Career-Ready in DC

This week I felt a lot more comfortable with working in Washington D.C. I have become more accustomed to the fast paced life style. In addition to the conference calls I was allowed to sit on, I got to accompany another member of the Chamber Hill Strategies firm to a few meetings with some of the staff of a Senator.

Washington, DC

This was an awesome experience, and I was able to ask these individuals about what it is they do in the Senator’s office and how the office works in general. I got plenty of feedback…
