Our Graduate Assistants are an integral part of what we do!

Our GA’s serve as career advisors, meeting with students to assist with career planning, resume and cover letter writing, interview training, and job/internship search training. They conduct our on-campus workshops and serve as team leaders for our career fairs.

Devin Ossi, Graduate Assistant    

My name is Devin Ossi and I am from Tampa, Florida. I am in the Masters program for Industrial-Organizational Psychology. I enjoy hiking, fishing, and cooking. As you can see I am a fan of the Oxford comma. If I had to trade lives with anyone, it would be Gordon Ramsay. I plan to retire by 35, live in a tiny home, and travel to all of the national parks.

Hi! My name is Liane, and I am a Graduate Assistant here at the CDC. I help conduct various workshops, and work with students to develop their resumes, cover letters and overall career path. I am a graduate student studying Industrial Organizational Psychology, and hope to one day work as a consultant to design efficient workplace systems. I enjoy hiking, photography and talking about my dog, Digby. Please stop by to utilize the many resources that the CDC has to offer- I look forward to meeting you!
