Today was a very exciting day as I started my first professional job post-graduation!
I am a new member of the University Advancement team at Elon University. As Coordinator of Annual Giving I will work with the senior class gift campaign and volunteers for class reunions. All spring I searched for an opportunity that would provide opportunities for me to focus on student philanthropy and fundraising from young alumni. This is an exciting position that includes both of those topics! I can already tell it’s going to be a great place to work.
Last fall, I took a class on job searching in student affairs and higher education. The class helped me start thinking about my search and somewhat prepared me for the intense job search and interview process in higher education! More to come on that in a future blog post.
Remembering to start each day with a grateful heart. Thanks for reading!
