Introduction to the Spring 2020 Career Corner Blog

Grace Crane, C'20
Career Center Intern

Welcome to the Career Corner Blog! My name is Grace Crane and I am honored to announce that I am the writing intern for the Career Center during this spring semester. I would like to extend my gratitude to Kelley Northam, our previous intern, for her many wonderful articles and informative resources made available to the Mount community. I look forward to contributing my skills and collaborating with the wonderful team here at the Career Center to provide words of encouragement and academic or professional advice that will aid other Mount students in their personal journeys to success.


I am a senior studying communication with a concentration in public relations and a minor in business. I have a strong passion and enthusiasm for reading writing, and editing, and hope to further offer my skills beyond my positions as a Writing Center tutor and as the opinion & life editor of The Mountain Echo. During my final semester here at the Mount, I plan to give back to the school and the community in the same ways that it has helped me to develop as a young professional looking to transition from college life to a career path.

It can seem daunting to begin searching for jobs or applying to graduate schools, but know that you are not alone in this journey. You have our infinite support here at the Career Center and many valuable resources available to you. The Career Center has assisted me on numerous occasions, throughout my college career, by providing academic and professional advice, developing my writing skills for my résumé and cover letters, and offering various opportunities to further expand my professional network. I hope to further the department’s mission to help my fellow classmates feel more comfortable, confident and well-prepared in obtaining internships, employment opportunities or graduate school acceptances.

I would also like to encourage students from every class, including our alumni, to visit the Career Center and utilize its many resources. No matter if you are a first-year student or a senior in your final year of college, all students can benefit from making an appointment with the Career Center to discuss future plans and begin the search for employment. Some of our services include – but are not limited to – reviewing résumés, filling out graduate school applications, performing mock interviews, or even simply discussing the transition from college to career.

The department also holds a number of events throughout the semester that equips students with the skills and confidence to enter the professional world, such as our annual Career Fair held each spring semester. The Career Fair,set this year for March 11, grants students of all majors the opportunity to meet with potential employers from over 50 companies to learn more about each business, offer their résumés, and form memorable personal connections that could lead to employment opportunities. We encourage all students to attend this very special event; make sure to wear appropriate professional attire, bring your résumé, and research the companies beforehand to impress any potential employers.

Please visit us at the Career Center office located in Suite 240 of McGowan Center, email, or visit our website to request an appointment with our professional experts. We look forward to working with you, and be sure to check back for more posts that will help you navigate your personal journey to success!
