I am originally from Southern California and moved to Chicago four years ago. I completed my undergraduate coursework at the University of Southern California. While at USC I received a Bachelors degree in Art History with a minor in English Literature. I am currently pursuing a Masters degree here at UIC in Education: Instructional Leadership and Educational Studies. I am thrilled to be working in the Office of Career Services both because of the numerous resources we offer and my own personal experience. When I graduated from college I had no idea what to look for in a career! Marketable skills, action verbs, and salary negotiation were quite scary for me and I was intimidated by the prospect of transitioning into a profession. I still regret not utilizing the services that my college offered more frequently. Now I get to help students not make that same mistake! I strongly encourage you to stop by our office and find out about all the resources available to assist you in finding a fulfilling and profitable career. It is never too early to sharpened your job-seeking skills. Stop by SSB 3050 to discover more. I look forward to meeting you! Have a great first week of classes. Sincerely, Allison ZuresPopcorn and JobsAug 26, 2009 8:46 am1132 views Come on in from the rain and have some popcorn. Today and next Wednesday we're having popcorn days.
