It was Dr. Maelia in particular who taught me the basics of Analytical Chemistry, which is essentially my job now. She also helped me land my first job and gain real-world experience right after graduation. I’m still very grateful for the support that all of my science professors offered throughout my time there. I’d also like to mention the amazing help I received from the Center for Career and Experiential Education. I had absolutely no resume writing skills, and now I’m a pro!” Continue Reading
