Utilizing Her Resources: Kelsey Wachs

Kelsey Wachs is a freshman majoring in history here at UWS. Kelsey has worked in the
Career and First Year Center during the past year and has now joined onto the ResNet team, as a student technician.

Kelsey first found out about this position on Jacket Jobs. Once she decided that she
wanted to apply she got to work on revising her resume. "My resume was absolutely horrible when I first looked at it," Kelsey recalled. "All I could see were things that I would suggest to fix." She decided to use the templates found on the Career Services website and start from scratch. After getting an interview, she again utilized the Career Services website for interview help.

The other factor contributing to her success was her willingness to learn. Kelsey wasn't a "computer geek" before getting the job. She knew the basics of how to work a computer, but had no idea how to build one. During the interview she expressed that "it would be awesome to actually get the opportunity to learn how to build a computer."

Kelsey's advice is, don't be afraid to utilize Career Services. "Even though I work in
Career Services, I learn something new every day." Everyone in the center is friendly and willing to help with even the smallest problems.

Nice work, Kelsey!
