I get to help future software developers and security analysts become better writers and communicators in the English 101 labs.

We discuss real-world topics such as how to write a cover letter that doesn't suck and how to build meaningful relationships.

Career Services Advisor

What a cool thing to be a part of. As an institution of higher learning, UAT embodies the agile/scrum mentality. New ideas are encouraged. People work together. Nerds triumph.

I run the career services program and report directly to the Dean of Student Affairs. I collaborate daily with all kinds of people: technical recruiters, company presidents, professors, tech leaders, hiring managers, artists, veterans, marketers, authors and guys who “have a really good idea for an APP.”

I organize and oversee career fairs and cross my fingers that students don’t show up in pajamas. (I also host workshops and fill their inboxes with email reminders not to.) I work diligently to connect UAT students and alumni with top industry employers, so a big part of my job is building, reviving and improving relationships. To increase UAT’s network, I collaborate with faculty, attend networking events, utilize LinkedIn, pick up the phone and grab a lot of coffees.

I also help students and alumni conduct successful job searches. I get to know my students, their (short-term and long-term) goals and their expectations (some reasonable, some outrageous). I ask the Student Services team questions about them. I talk to their professors. I played on the soccer team until I got hurt.

Another focus of my job is reengaging alumni who graduated before 2013, learning about their post-graduation experiences and helping them with job searches.

The Admissions team and I work together to answer prospective students'​ questions about job prospects, internships and job search strategies. I chat with mom and dad too.

And I get to run the English 101 labs, where I help 120 students learn how to write concisely, edit mercilessly and use EM dashes and metaphors like a boss.
