As a member of M.A.L.E.S. (Men Achieving Leadership Excellence and Success) and Biology Club, Nick is well aware of what it takes to be successful and receives guidance from all angles. Nick visits Career Services 1-2 times a month, often times just to talk, but has also received assistance in creating and polishing his resume.
Nick is a prime example of the sentiment that, "Hard work pays off!" Through Nick's hard work and persistence, he was able to land a job as a Teacher Assistant at the University of Washington in the Ecology of Sierra Nevada Forests course. While Nick will also be taking the class himself, he will also be assisting the teacher with general professional tasks as well help as help in collecting data. When asked what it was that prepared him for the job, Nick exclaimed, "Things I have learned through our amazing Biology program". Nick's current job as a biology tutor as well as his continuous desire to learn will help him to meet the demands of the job with ease.
Nick knows for a fact that, "If you work hard you will get places." Wise words well spoken Nick!
Congratulations Nick! Good Luck!
