With guidance from the Office of Career Services, senior Brittany Tripp is currently employed full time at RMI as a Marketing Specialist. In this position, she is responsible for generating leads through trade shows and web resources, as well as preparing marketing materials and a yearly marketing plan. Having received a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, and a minor in Digital Art and Design, Brittany was very fortunate to get a job doing exactly what she went to school for.
When Brittany was first accepted to Eastern, she remembers looking through information booklets and seeing a list of companies that former Eastern students were working for. In that moment, she knew that Career Services could offer the resources to help find paid internship and a rewarding job at a successful company.
Once an appointment was scheduled, a career counselor showed her how to use online resources to find a job and also provided many résumé reviews. The service guides available through Career Services were also a big help, like the "Guide to Cover Letters," "Guide to Résumés" and "Guide to Interviews".
Brittany completed her degree in December and plans to attend the commencement this May. In the meantime, she will be learning and making the most of her experience at RMI.
