Year in school: Graduated!
Length of time worked at UMD Career & Internship Services: January 2011 – May 2013
Favorite place in Duluth: Probably 7 Bridges Road. It is a nice drive. I also love the lake walk in the summer. You can’t beat it!
Best career advice you’ve received: Do what makes you happy. Find your passions and follow them!
Piece of career advice you have for other students: Start early! Research everything you’re interested in. Majors, industries, companies, everything. Know exactly what you want to do by the end of your sophomore year and then start branding yourself.
Next Steps: After graduating from UMD in May 2013, Abby is now working in Portland as a Director of Events and in Marketing.
