Before attending Berry, I had never had a “real” job, so I was pretty nervous about starting my job on campus. When I first met with my work supervisor on campus, we worked together, one-on-one, to figure out a perfect fit for me. I am so thankful for the amazing work experience I had my freshman year and the patience and kindness my work supervisors expressed to me. I am currently working two jobs, both revolving around my major, Marketing, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the impressive job descriptions I am able to put on my resume. I currently hold the positions of Organizational Chart Manager for the Student Work Office and Advertising Coordinator Apprentice for the Career Center. One lesson I’ve learned from my work experience is to use my resources and not be afraid to ask for help. In fact, after discussing my desire to work in advertising, my boss from the Student Work Office showed me what I needed to do to get a job in that field. I am very gracious to Berry for allowing me to “experience it firsthand” in the Student Work Experience Program and I am very excited to use my acquired skills in the working world!
