By Danielle Golinski, Career Advising Fellow
Hello all, it is a true pleasure to be writing the first blog on behalf of the 2014-2015 Career Advising Fellow crew! Although this may be the first post of the academic year from us, it is just the beginning of our amazing journey and story that we will share with each one of you dedicated readers. It is going to be an absolutely thrilling ride, I hope you are ready to join us!
So what have the Career Fellows been up to? Well, first, there are now 3 of us; 3 wonderful ladies working together every day and learning about all that Elon University has to offer and how we fit into the realm of things. Kristen is the newest addition member to our team, she will be sure to introduce herself. We are so fortunate to have another support in this 3-legged stool of our – the fellows role – team.
During the first 2 months of our time here at Elon we have breezed through training, the first day of school, and the first 3 weeks of classes. We have begun our presentations to various classrooms and campus organizations, met with a wonderful group of Elon’s Senior Staff, met with and have gotten to know the Student Professional Development Center and all of its staff members, and we have learned about Elon’s mission and strategic plan all while settling into our new on-campus apartment (with a can’t be beat 2-minute walking commute) and surrounding environment. It sure has been a lot, but every moment of every day has been engaging, educational, rewarding, and most of all, fun!
Feel free to send us all positive vibes as we dig deeper into the year. To end, I would like to include a quote that I most recently put on my LinkedIn profile because I feel that it expresses exactly who and I am and why I am here “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius
