CAREER EDGE MANAGER

My name is Sarah Vojta and I am a senior at Bentley University from Morris Plains, New Jersey. I am majoring in Marketing, pursuing a Liberal Studies Major in Health and Industry, and minoring in Management. I am passionate about helping others and challenging myself in and out of the classroom.

On campus, I am the VP of Marketing and External Relations for the Bentley Sustainable Investment Group. I have previously been a resident assistant in the first year area, working with Thrive, a Defined Community focused on health and wellness initiatives, and was a member of the Student Advisory Board associated with Bentley’s Residential Center.

Some of my past work experience includes interning for VRR Media Productions, being an editor for their two sister shows Stop My Crisis and Beyond My Crisis. I then worked my way up to head editor where I was responsible for a small team ensuring consistency in content and quality of the episodes we produced. This past summer, I started my internship with Disinfect Boston, a company focused on keeping their clients safe and healthy, as well as keep businesses open throughout the pandemic. I was also a Swim Coach for the Lakeland Hills YMCA and a local pool association in New Jersey while overseeing our swim lessons program that I founded in 2019. I was able to manage all of this while taking six Bentley courses, putting me on track to graduate in December of 2021. I have a passion for personal development, assisting others to become more confident in their skills and abilities, and teaching others life skills that benefit their personal and professional growth.
