"Career services was indispensable after my graduation. Job hunting is never fun no matter what area of work you are in, but with Shannon, I knew I was in good hands. The advice and tips that were given to me helped me get the interviews and meet the people that I did. Shannon has an insight of the industry that is unparalleled with anyone else.
I distinctly remember going to a resume critique workshop, and I had brought my resume that Shannon recently coached me on, and the recruiter told me that my resume was one of the best resumes he has seen in a while, and that if he was a hiring manager, he would call me in a heartbeat. Even after you finish the program, Shannon is there with you helping you on your cover letter, interview questions, resume, and much more. Everything she tells and advises you to do, DO IT!"

"Our Career Services Director was a huge asset in my job search. She provided excellent feedback on my resume and website, sent me job postings that she felt fit both my skill AND personality, and was 100% committed to helping me get a job that wouldn’t just pay the bills, but would make me happy.
I call her my personal cheerleader because she went above and beyond: she would give me pep talks before interviews, make sure I was actually interested in the jobs I was applying to, and used her vast professional network to introduce me to potential employers."

“On the career and networking side of things, Shannon has been an amazing addition to ACL--she started when my cohort began last year--and she has also been instrumental in the success of grads getting hired at awesome companies around PDX, time and time again.”
