The Career Colleagues team is a group of students on campus who work within the Undergraduate Career Services Office. Since the team works daily with everything and anything career related, they are a great source of advice because they have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, when it comes to your career. Here are a few pieces of advice each team member wanted to share with the larger Bentley community:
“Take advantage of all of the resources that Bentley and the Career Services office has to offer. Whether it is coming in for drop ins, meeting with your career coach, attending a networking event, or taking the career development classes. All of these resources are designed to help you to succeed and land the career you want. Be proactive as early as possible in utilizing these resources so that you know what to expect and how to put yourself in a position to be successful. “
- Kirsten Dionne, Major: Accounting and Health & Industry LSM
“Seek out a mentor. This person can be a co-worker, your supervisor, a professor, or even a relative. It doesn’t really matter who it is as long as you can have open and honest conversations about work and life and you can learn something from them.”
- Spencer Kelly, Major: CFA
“When applying to internships and jobs, it’s always helpful to have either a career colleague or a staff member look over your resume and cover letter to make sure everything looks good before submitting”
- Michael Plansky, Major: Finance
