  • STUDENT 1

    Major: Accounting
    Hometown: Dallas, TX
    Career Path: Accountant/Auditor

    Career development is a program that I utilized throughout my college career. With events such as Networking Nights and Job Shadows, I've been able to land internships and now a full-time position. Without Career Development, I would not be where I am today.

  • Ashley Ortiz

    Major: Business Analytics
    Hometown: Dallas, TX
    Career Path: Corporate Business Analyst

    Career Development has helped me and had a huge influence on my career path. They keep me motivated and not only helped me find a great company to job shadow during the 2015 spring semester, but also helped me find my current job as a graduate assistant. Career development is a great department that is more than willing to help any student find jobs and internships.

  • Jennifer Tran

    Major: Industrial Engineering/Computer Science
    Hometown: Dallas, TX
    Career Path: IT Project Manager

    Doing two job shadows helped me solidify what exactly career I wanted to pursue with my major. I was worried that I would not be able to find an internship within my major because it is highly competitive but found an internship opportunity through Career Development with Companion Data Services. Interning there has to be one of the best decisions of my life and I'm so blessed to have been given this opportunity.

  • Bethany Ferrall

    Major: MBA
    Hometown: McKinney, TX
    Career Path: Project Manager

    Although I was working full time prior to completing my degree, my MBA from A&M-Commerce has helped me to advance in my career. About 3 months after graduating, I accepted a job offer at Raytheon as a Project Management Liaison. I have always wanted to work for a large, prestigious, and reputable company like Raytheon and my education and your help made it possible. For this, I am forever grateful.

  • Eric Fry, CDS Intern

    Major: Computer Science
    Hometown: Royse City, TX
    Career Path: Software Developer/Database Administrator

    My IT internship this summer in Dallas that I landed by utilizing career development may be the best experience I will gain in my college education. Thank you for connecting me with the recruiter, coordinating the on-campus interview, and helping me with my resume. I literally cannot thank you enough.
