Get to know your Johnson alumni career advisors
Career tips from Laurie Sedgwick and Lynne Allen
I am incredibly excited to announce that my colleague Lynne Allen and I are taking ownership of Johnson’s alumni career column, Career Corner, and will be writing to you directly as your Johnson alumni career advisors in each issue of Inside Johnson starting now. In each issue of Inside Johnson, we will share information about career resources available to alumni, highlight job postings, provide case studies of job seekers, point you to interesting, career-related articles, and provide other helpful career-related information.
In this first column, I thought I would highlight the services and resources available to you as Johnson alumni. First, you have access to career advisors – email us to schedule an appointment!
