Becky Herrig and the Career Services Office have been extremely helpful and flexible with me to complete my two internships and have them count as credit at Clarke. Many students may not know that the job you are working right now could fit the requirements of an internship.

Co-Founder of Archer Career

There will always be a need for workers who can think critically, solve problems, and communicate, and a liberal arts education is the best way to develop that knowledge. I know I am getting these skills from Clarke interns and encourage other organizations to do the same.

As a third year DPT student, Becky came into our class to share resume, cover letter, and interview tips. She gave us loads of information to set us up for success when creating these important documents! I feel better prepared for the job search with the help from Becky!

Education

Before attending Clarke, I have never been taught how to write a resume. Becky illustrated exactly what future employers will be looking for when I hand them my resume. Each student at Clarke has a goal, and Becky has the resources and motivation to see each student succeed.
