Dear Mackay Students,

Katia AlbrightFor those of you I haven't met yet, my name is Katia and I am the Coordinator of Career Development for the Mackay School of Earth Sciences and Engineering. The Mackay School is committed to supporting students as they achieve academically and later make the successful transition into the professional world. Mackay majors offer unique skill sets to employers, and I am proud to help guide you through that journey

As you begin this venture, remember that career development is more than just looking for a job. At Mackay Student Services, we'll offer you ample opportunities to further develop these ever-important techniques, including:

  • Career exploration and planning
  • Résumé writing and effective interviewing skills
  • Job and internship seeking skills
  • Professional correspondence and conduct
  • Effective networking practices and employer/industry research

To this end, I work with students both individually and in group workshops to help cultivate the whole range of necessary skills. Additionally, there are numerous resources and events that I coordinate to reinforce these professionally desirable qualities.

And I am proactive about letting students know about these opportunities beforehand. There's the event calendar, the Mackay Facebook page, not to mention email notifications at multiple points before an event.

While Mackay students are my primary focus, I also serve as point of contact for employers who benefit from our students. Whether it's an information session, meet & greet, job fair, or if they're searching for a new intern or employee, it is my responsibility to facilitate student success.

Just contact me to schedule an appointment so that we can discuss your career development needs.

Thanks and I look forward to working with you!
