Hey everyone! My name is Hayley and I am a Psychology major and a Biology minor here at UMD. Just a little about me; I am a senior this year and I am in the process of applying to grad schools. Right now I am looking at masters programs in school counseling, but that could change tomorrow for all I know. This is the beginning of my second year working at Career and Internship Services and I am loving it. I am originally from Mankato, MN, and have been at UMD my entire college career. This was my first summer staying in Duluth and it was amazing. I discovered that my favorite place in Duluth is Leif Erickson Park, on the boardwalk with a view of the pier. It’s a great place to sit and relax on a nice day; not so nice in the middle of winter, but still my favorite place. I don’t really have a favorite movie, actor or singer. As far as music goes I kinda like a little of this and a little of that, I’m not too picky. I love going to see movies with my friends. It’s a great activity to do during the never ending Duluth winter.
Now for the career related info; One of the best pieces of career advice that I have received is to do something that I enjoy that plays into my strengths, if I change my mind and decide that I don’t like it anymore I can change it; it’s not something that is set in stone. My advice for other students is to make a general plan of where they want to be in X amount of years or what they want to do and find out what they need to do to get there. Just make sure your plan is flexible, I know from experience that its difficult to decide exactly what it is that you want to do and once you think you have made that decision you might change your mind once or twice so you need to be able to have a little wiggle room.
I am looking forward to working on the blog this year and I hope that I can provide at least a little helpful information for you all!
