  • "Whitney was very helpful in assisting me in refining my résumé and looking at alternative careers that I could pivot to…I have found employment and I know that Whitney was an important part of the process."
  • "Career Services helped me by streamlining my résumé, brainstorming job search ideas and refining where I could best leverage my skillset and work experience for a more targeted job search. The Zoom group meetings were particularly helpful as during COVID it was encouraging to hear and share job search challenges with others in the same situation."
  • "I did not even know how much I needed the guidance! I received support getting my résumé updated, learning how the field I work in operates, how it has changed since I last looked for a job many years ago, and most importantly I had a sounding board to work through my feelings on the process."
