What I like about working at the Career Center

Everything. I love my co-workers, the other employees who work at the university, as well as the students who work in the Career Center and those who I work with on a daily basis. I can't imagine a better place to work. I am so lucky to have been here for over 10 years.   

About Kim

I moved to the Quad Cities with my husband in 2005 and started working for the Handicapped Development Center working as a case manager.  I loved working with mentally and physically disabled individuals but was very eager to obtain a position at a university and put my master's in higher education to use. I was extremely lucky to find a position in the Career Center.  I immediately felt welcome at the university and was grateful to work at such a great place.

Outside of the Career Center, I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking,and reading.

What I do at the Career Center:

I do a variety of things at the Career Center. I help students who are undecided in their major or career direction. For those headed to graduate school, I teach them about the application process and review their graduate school admissions essays.

Additionally, I coach students on resume and cover letter writing; provide interview coaching; review students LinkedIn profiles; help maintain our website and assist with marketing; and finally, I assist with special events such as Career Boot Camp, ProFair, Health Sciences Fair, and the Etiquette and Networking dinner.

I also work with employers to create new internship opportunities for St. Ambrose students.
