Melissa Pappas is a first-year student and a member of the CDC Student Marketing Board. This is part one of a two part series focused on varying perspectives of utilizing the CDC, as a first-year and as a senior.
Oxy Confession: The CDC is not scary. In fact, it is very helpful. And I am a first-year.
Because I just started college three months ago, it may seem ridiculous and over-ambitious to start thinking about life after graduation. From watching my two older siblings go through college and end up with good jobs, I have learned that preparing early for the future is critical. Although I have an idea of what career paths interest me, I do not know the best ways to get there. That is what Occidental’s Career Development Center is for.
