UCSB Career Peer
Hi, everyone! My name is Gina and I'm a 4th year transfer Sociology Major.
Academic year working for Career Services?:
How did you choose your major? Minor?:
I was honestly not enjoying my previous major and made the decision to switch to Sociology by looking at class descriptions and talking to other people in the major here at UCSB. I definitely made the right choice!
Describe the different types of internship or job experiences that you have been involved with?:
I mostly have experience with student services in a college setting.
What is your current career goal?:
I would like to go into counseling for higher education.
What one resource would you recommend to students coming to Career Services?:
I have found that the information sessions and the mock interviews with our career counselors are really helpful.
What career advice would you give to UCSB students that you wish you knew about earlier on?:
Start getting involved early on in any way you can! A lot of what you do just in clubs and organizations can work as great experience, especially when you stick with them for a long time.
