“I want to thank the Career Hub from the bottom of my heart for all the advice, support and encouragement over the last two years…. The Hub helped me to gain confidence and realize the power of my empathetic and adaptable nature and how I can apply it professionally…. The Career Hub has been a huge resource for me, and I can’t recommend it enough to other students. About halfway through my MBA program, during the Hub’s networking dinner, I coincidentally sat next to the Director of a local organization…. A conversation [with them] at that event ultimately led to an internship in Small Business Development, which was an amazing experience for me and allowed me to carry out my passion of supporting and learning about local small businesses. Each step of the way during my time at USM, the Career Hub was there for me as I got to know myself better personally and professionally and determined where I wanted to launch my career path. It’s clear the Career Hub team is passionate about their work and I always felt so uplifted after our meetings.”— Madeline Lutts ’20, MBA
“The USM Career Hub is a team of brilliant planners with knowledge in a multitude of backgrounds. you don’t need to have many years of experience or to be a guru to get an internship or job. These brilliant people will find your unique background and make that your strength while applying for a job. In my sophomore year at USM, I had a plan to apply to internships. Since I was a beginner, I first gained some research experience at a laboratory that I am extremely grateful about. During my internship, the Career Hub supported me and furhtered my steps towards my ambition.
In the late phase of my internship, I was actively looking for career advancement options. I had multiple video sessions with Hub team members which were my life-changing steps. After multiple interviews, I was able to secure an Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator position at Stanford University School of Medicine. This current position provides me with in-depth knowledge of clinical medicine and research that will strangthen me towards my furhter education in a Dotor of Medicine (MD) career.
I am a first-generation college student, a first-generation immigrant, and come from a disadvantaged background in the rural hills of Nepal. I am highly thankful to the USM community and the Career Hub for supporting me towards my ambition.”— Deepak Kandel ’21, BS in Human Biology Pre-Medicine, Assistant Clinical Research Coordinator at Stanford University School of Medicine
“The Career Hub helped me streamline my path at USM. The Hub team not only gave me career search engines where I could find job titles, their associated degrees, and salaries, but also showed me classes and programs I had never considered to get me to those careers and reach my goals. Their suggestions helped me refine and tailor my class choices so I am best prepared to meet my goals after I finish my degree. The Career Hub’s advice and suggestions were all new to me; I’m so glad I took advantage of this resource as it opened the right doors so my USM experience could be as relevant as possible to my post-university vision. I’m thrilled that the Career Hub took the time to help me feel confident with my classes and confident in my future.”— Genevieve Paradis, current students, Psychology major
