We are the 5 Career Development Interns at the University of Georgia Career Center: Femi, Emily, Kendall, Sierra, and Jeff.
We’re all students at UGA and work with the Career Center to be the voice of the student body–we’re constantly learning the ins-and-outs of the Career Search from the Career Center’s fabulous Consultants and trying to get the word out to the student population about the great resources that are here. We’ve created this blog to share with you the interesting things we learn about the job search, interviewing, the current job market, and differentiating yourself from the thousands of other students out there searching for a job or internship.
