How has her UD education set her apart?

While at UD Mary worked as the Director in Charge of Student Programming, and she says that getting involved with a variety of activities during her time here helped her gain the experience that led to her permanent position. She says that potential employers looked favorably on her ability to hold leadership roles while maintaining a full academic load.

How did her experience at UD prepare her for the future?

“I didn’t do just one internship,” Mary said. “I did several. I gained on the job, down to earth experience that helped me get a position right after graduation.” She says that these internships, along with her volunteer positions, gave her a wealth of experiences and situations upon which to draw when talking to an employer or in an interview situation.
