With a new semester starting up there are many ways you can utilize the resources that the CCO has to offer. Those resources include our incredible staff! Each week we will feature one of our amazing Career Consultants that can help you develop professionally and personally. This week we want you to meet Lauren! I sat down with Lauren and asked her a few questions about her experience and discussed advice she has for students.
How long have you been at the CCO?
What is one of your favorite aspects of your job?
I love managing the marketing team and watching them grow and develop professionally and individually.
What is your favorite thing about Purdue?
I feel honored to work at an institution like Purdue. The people who run this university are hard-working, genuine, and inspirational. Purdue is a university that is always striving to improve and make a world-wide impact.
What is a piece of career/life advice that you want to give to Purdue students?
You do NOT have to have your life plans figured out right now. As a student, I felt the pressure to know exactly what I'd be doing for the next 50 years, and that's just not feasible and caused me unnecessary stress. Yes, have dreams and a vision for your life, but know that your career journey is a process. Take it one step at a time.
