Success Stories

What are students and alumni saying about Career Services?

Josh Mitchell, B.A. Youth Ministry, Class of 2011 said:

"With the help of Career Services, I was able to land my dream job before I even graduated! Career Services gave me the personalized tools I needed to search, apply, interview, and get the job I wanted. Jim and Martha were informative, practical, and professional. I would recommend the Career Services workshops and meetings to anyone who is looking for a job or even thinking about it."

Ron Nelson, M.A. in Pastoral Studies said:

“With only one semester left and as I started thinking about the job search, attending the Career Services workshops made good sense for me. Even though I am already familiar with the working world, these workshops provided me with the perfect “tune-up” for my job search. They allowed me to review and freshen up what I was already familiar with such as resumes and “networking,” and also brought me up to speed with how to maximize the use of social networking techniques such as Linkedin and Facebook. Career Services made this convenient and easy by spreading the workshops out and at times that worked for me, and by presenting concise and quick presentations which included materials we could take home with us. I highly recommend these workshops if you are serious about getting a head start on job search.”

Kelly Jo Cox, B.A. Bible & Theology, Graduate Student in M.A. Counseling said:

"Graduating from Multnomah University prepared me for life and work in the professional world, but getting hired for a job that I actually wanted turned out to be harder than I thought. Going to Career Services and working with Martha helped me put all my experience into a professional resume that I felt very confident in. The results were amazing…within three months of working with Martha, I was offered two jobs! The Career Services Department is a huge asset to the undergraduate, graduate, and seminary students, as well as to Multnomah alumni. I would encourage present and past students to use this service!"

Melissa Neago, Educational Ministries with a concentration in Women’s Ministry said:

“Multnomah’s Career Services Department has been very helpful as I prepare for life after Multnomah and even as I go through my junior year now. Through the various workshops, I feel much more prepared and confident to face the workforce and offer my skills. The workshops on resumes and cover letters, interviewing, and informational interviewing were especially helpful. They offer practical tips that can be helpful to students in their job or internship search even while still at Multnomah. Martha is very knowledgeable and is available and willing to motivate and assist students in their job search. This is a great, free opportunity I would encourage all students at Multnomah to take advantage of. The Camp Expo is an awesome opportunity to network with wonderful organizations and find great summer work. Through the Camp Expo I found a great camp that I worked with last summer. It was an amazing ministry experience that also left me with some great friendships and memories. If adventure and ministry are your things, you should definitely check out the Camp Expo put on by Career Services!”

Sarah Jones, Intercultural/TESOL Major, Junior said:

“The Career Services workshops have helped me to feel less intimidated about the job search process. By walking through the processes of networking, resumes, interviews, and social networking in the workshops, I now feel that I have the tools I need to confidently look for a job.”
