History and Social Science major Wiley Dawson has been making positive strides on the road to success since day one. For the highly influential M.A.L.E.S. (Men Achieving Leadership Excellence and Success) member and current SGA (Student Government Association) President, the future couldn't look any brighter.
Since his freshman year at Eastern, Wiley has been utilizing the resources of Career Services. On many occasions he sought out the guidance of Career Services Director Nancy DeCrescenzo who introduced him to the Optimal Resume tool and the many other resources Career Services has to offer. With the help of Career Services, Wiley was able to polish his resume and cover letter so that it would stand out and ultimately land him a job in the future.
Through his persistence and dedication Wiley was able to land an internship with the National Park Service where he will be working in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA). There he will be working directly under the Chief Director of Public Relations as he assists with the planning and administering of large and small events such as weddings, family reunions, and movie premiers. Wiley's experience as a student leader and Resident Assistant helped him to hone his organizational, public speaking, management, and interpersonal skills; all very vital and pertinent to the duties of his new internship.
In regards to Career Services, Wiley advises, "When they give you a resource...just do it". When you're looking for "real advice, real opinions, and great suggestions", Career Services is the place to go.
Congratulations Wiley! Great job!
