"I am very appreciative of the services I received from the career center. I am a husband and a father who attended school and worked full time, so needless to say it was hard for me to really and truly do a job search. I relied heavily on the Career Services online services to do much of my search. I am a non-traditional student who knew that I would need related experience before I would even be considered for a position in my field after graduation. I found a company that intrigued me and was conducting interviews on campus for an internship following graduation. Well, I signed up for the interview. I was called a week later and was invited to school for an interview. A week following the initial interview, I was called and invited for an interview session at their corporate offices. I interviewed for three different positions, and went on my way. I was home no longer than an hour and received a phone call from the company. It was one of the managers I interviewed with earlier in the day. Basically, he offered me a position on his team as an intern for the summer. I happily accepted! I got into the summer and eventually started my internship. A few weeks into the internship I let it be known that if the opportunity arose I would love to interview for a full-time position. A couple of weeks later I am invited to lunch with the Director of the BIS (Business Information Systems) department. Come to find out this lunch was an interview!! So we finish lunch, get back to the office and he tells me, 'You will hear back from me by the end of the week.' Amazingly enough, a week later, I am offered a position on his team as Programmer Analyst. I accepted!!!"
