Alumna of Morgridge College of Education, Counseling Psychology

Q: In relation to graduation, when did you start the job search and when did you secure your position?
A:
It m
ay seem early, but I started my job search back in September of my last year of grad school and secured my position in June of my graduation year.  It was a long process, but very insightful.

Q: If you were in your graduate program again, what would you do differently,?
A:
I would have sought out an internship that was more focused on my interests versus the first internship that I found.  Looking back, I feel as though I settled.

Q: What advice or additional comments do you have for current students?

The dissertation process was one of the most exciting and exhausting experiences of my life. Be prepared to experience a variety of emotions throughout the process but know you will write your final word and it will be so worth it in the end. Our scholarship matters.
