Having an on-campus job close to the Office of Career Services really benefitted senior Dave Tignonsini. Since working at the Office of AccessAbility Services, he has had the liberty of always knowing when a career counselor was available to answer his questions and all it took was walking a few steps over to the next office! Dave made sure not to take any opportunity for granted.
With frequent help from a career counselor, Dave went through the steps in developing a résumé and was introduced to all of our online resources, such as EXPERIENCE. Luckily, after creating an account with EXPERIENCE to receive job and internship postings, it did not take long before an opportunity presented itself.
Dave is currently gaining knowledgeable experience interning with the Marketing Bureau of the Department of Agriculture. Some of his tasks include updating local farm maps and marketing a coloring book, which a close friend actually designed. He enjoys all of his time spent interning, and says that he is "really learning important things about the marketing field."
Dave will graduate from Eastern this May with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration and a double concentration in Marketing and Management. As for future aspirations, he hopes that interning with the Department of Agriculture will help open doors to new future career opportunities.
