Concerned about finding a job? Learn from Lauren's success story…

What kinds of things did you do while in college to prepare you for your professional life after college, or to make yourself more marketable?

As a student at UNG, I was given the opportunity to work as a facilities supervisor for the UNG Recreational Center for 3 years. This gave me leadership and communication skills that I am able to now carry over into my career. I was also able to participate in a summer study abroad program in Istanbul, Turkey in 2012 as well as do an overseas internship in Mumbai, India in 2013. I am incredibly grateful for both of these opportunities as they contributed in increasing my cross-cultural competence.

How did you hear about (or find) your current position?

Through Dora Ditchfield at Career Services, I was told about a job posting website called in which I first saw the Admissions Officer position open. I quickly applied and was given an interview within two weeks and a job offer within another two weeks of the interview.

What advice would you like to give to current students to help prepare them for careers and/or the job search after college?

I would advise that any student who is working towards a specific career to get as much job experience during college as possible. Any jobs or internships you can have as a student will make you more marketable, giving you that job experience that you can then carry over into your career. Employers want someone who is well-rounded and experienced more than they want someone with a high GPA. The more you can sharpen your leadership skills and your ability to work alongside all different types of people, the better-off you will be in your job interview down the road.
