Advice for other Liberal Arts students: Take advantage of any opportunities that come your way. If there’s an internship you're interested in, but not sure if you're experienced enough, go for it! As cliché as it sounds, you never know until you try.

Advice for other Liberal Arts students: Do not limit yourself with what you can do with your career and your life. There are so many opportunities for you to take advantage of here on campus and in your future once you graduate. Be willing to keep your options open! There are people here to help guide you along the way, and every decision you make helps you figure out who you are and what you want to do. Don’t sell yourself short, you can do whatever you set your mind to.

Advice to other Liberal Arts students: I’m someone who really needs to organize everything. Some things that really helped me to stay organized when applying to jobs while also still taking classes and working was making a master list of all the internships/ jobs I wanted to apply to, the link to the application, the deadline, and the date they’ll let you know by. Also, keeping a folder of all of my different resumes and cover letters with detailed names really helped when I needed to pull a cover letter together really quick!

Best career advice received: "Be yourself." You'll never be happy in a career or workplace that doesn't fit your style or match your vision. Carry yourself with the confidence of knowing who you are and what you want, and the right doors will open!

Advice to other Liberal Arts students: If you aren't able to understand who you are and what you want to do, that is okay. Take your time to find where you are and your strong suits in life, even if you are to a point where you think that you can't change your career, you can. As long as you love what you want to do, you can take as long as you need to get there. Nothing happens in just a day.
