Delaware State University’s Career Services department has hired new career coaches.
As we enter the Fall, 2019 semester, Tamika Lee, one of three new career coaches will serve as the career coach for students in the College of Humanities, Education & Social Sciences and the College of Health & Behavioral Sciences.
Ms. Lee has a master’s degree in Behavioral and Social Science along with extensive experience in college advertising and outreach.
“My experience here has been great; the students have been very receptive and they have been open to the change that has taken place, with pretty much everyone in the office being brand new,” says Ms. Lee.
Moving forward into the semester Ms. Lee wants to ensure that all seniors have a plan B after graduation. Whether it is a job in their field of study or graduate school. She plans to focus on preparing students for life after college.
Serving as the new career coach for The College of Agriculture Science & Technology is Mia Freeman. Ms. Freeman has a Master of Education degree in School Counseling, along with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Psychology from Delaware State University.
Along with helping and preparing students for life after Del. State, Ms. Freeman wants to make sure students know about career services and the opportunities and services that are available to them.
“I want students to know that we are here to help them. Even if it’s just trying to help them figure out their life. In general, we want our students to find success,” says Ms. Freeman.
Danielle Craig is Career Services’ new Internship Coordinator. She specializes in employer relations, developing internship search strategies for students, and much more.
Ms. Craig has a B.S. in Psychology and an MBA in Marketing Management. Recently she has held positions with Cambridge Network and Workforce Development.
Ms. Craig says she has had an amazing experience here at Del. State so far and feels like this is home.
“I want to implement a smoother transition in regards to getting internship and job opportunities out there to the students whether it’s by college or by class,” she says.
