Tiger Tales: Danielle Sherman ‘12
"Now I am loving my job and am excited about my future career."
Valerie Savior at the CDC helped me define my values and career interest. Additionally, she convinced me to get an internship and helped me get the perfect one helping Renee Dominique ‘91 at the Eagle Rock Center for the Arts with its annual art auction. That internship took me from feeling directionless and stressed about the usefulness of my liberal arts degree to feeling inspired. I realized that I can use the writing and communications skills that I learned from Oxy for an exciting career in nonprofit development.
After graduating, I interned at another nonprofit doing event planning while working part-time on development for the Oakland School District. In November, I was able to get a full-time position as the Development Coordinator at a nonprofit called Hispanics in Philanthropy, where I use both my English and Spanish degrees on a day-to-day basis as I write grant proposals, plan events and coordinate all of the organization's fundraising efforts.
I appreciate the services provided by the career center, especially internship placement but also resume and cover letter help. I honestly have no idea what I would have done after college if I had not come in, and now I am loving my job and am excited about my future career.
