Our student staff are vital to helping us meet the needs of our students!

Each of our student staff members take on specific roles within the center, while also working closely with the entire team to make the Career Development Center a friendly and student focused place. Within their roles, they find major specific content to help students on our website, help with tasks on Charger Career Link, assist with event planning and marketing, assist with employer relations, and conduct massive amounts of research.

They also receive regular career coaching and advising to ensure their personal careers are on the right track.

I am a Junior Marine Biology student here at UNH.  As an NJ native I love going to the beach, the Adventure Aquarium in Camden and the museums in New York City. On and around campus I’m typically hanging out at the library or you can find me at club meetings for SPELL and the Marine Biology Club. Any adventure is a good time to me so when I’m not working at the Career Development Center (CDC) or studying for classes I like to hike, play racquetball at the gym, hang out in downtown New Haven, or read a good book.

My job at the Career Development Center as a Student Worker is to help out around the office with various projects.  Those projects range from helping Brian coordinate for the Career Fairs, posting jobs or doing research with Katie, cleaning out ChargerLink with Amanda, and writing templates and guides for Dina and Kathy. Even when I’m not in the office I’m helping my friends out with their resumes before they send them in to get approved.

Since I was a freshman I’ve been using the Career Development Center as a vital and important tool in planning for my future and gaining experience with the help of those in the office.  The CDC is a great resource for finding jobs or internships, writing a resume or cover letter, talk about grad school planning  and plenty more.  It is definitely one of the most resourceful offices on campus!

Our Intern helps make the CDC shine!

The CDC has talented interns who focus on our marketing, graphic design, and social media efforts. They produce all of our high quality images, flyers, videos, and social media pieces. They are intimately involved with the branding initiatives of the department and help plan short and long term marketing campaigns.

Since they are interns and need to be learning as much as doing, they attend a weekly marketing meeting, are introduced to new technology, and are given assignments that require them to stretch their imaginations and their skill sets.

My name is Zora Skeete. I’m a junior studying graphic design. I love traveling and trying new things! I enjoy drawing, cooking, and exercising in my spare time. This is my first year working at the Career Development Center as their graphic design intern. Students should utilize the CDC’s services to gain better knowledge of the work force and how to confidently navigate it.
