Employer Events Specialist

My role at UC San Diego

As the Employer Events Specialist for the Career Services Center, my role is to coordinate the Triton Job & Internship Fairs, the On Campus Interviewing Program and Company Information Sessions. These are just a few of the ways I help employers connect with our UCSD students.

My career path

My background in non-profit event planning and fundraising has given me a strong foundation in many different areas of development. With this new offshoot of fair coordination and employer services, I am striving to broaden my experiences at UCSD in the Career Services Center.

The rewards in doing what I do

I find it rewarding when I hear success stories of UCSD students obtaining interviews, internships and careers with employers because of the events, programs and services we provide. It helps me know I am part of a team that makes a significant impact on students’ lives.

My words of wisdom to students

Make the most out of every job opportunity, whether it’s volunteering, interning or working full time. You will always gain more experience that makes you marketable for your next job opportunity.

In my free time...

In my free time, I enjoy spending family time with my new son and two dogs. I enjoy taking advantage of San Diego’s weather and all the activities.
