Why I Chose Northwest

I chose Northwest because I heard great things about it, and even before I got here, I felt Northwest was a home away from home. 

My Dream Job is ...

My dream job is work for a company where I can have a touch of the two different fields that I am passionate about; Human Resources and Information system, a place that I get to communicate and help others, but also create strategies to help the organization succeed, in the technology side.

My Favorite Career Event and Why Students Should Attend

My favorite Career Event is Career Day. Students should attend because you can network with different employers, learn about new companies, and you get a touch of what employers are looking for these days in your field. Awesome experience, that can get you a job.

Advice for Students

The phrase "Once a Bearcat, Always a Bearcat" is very accurate. You will forever be a Bearcat, so enjoy your time as a student, learn, meet people from different backgrounds, open your mind to learn something new.

Northwest provides a lot of good resources, to make students their best version. USE IT, and I promise you won't regret in the future.
