As a graduate of University of Wisconsin-River Falls, I was ecstatic to have McKenna Schumacher Pfeiffer, Assistant Director of Career Services at UWRF join me in the studio.
McKenna helps students and alumni make their dreams come true with career counseling by assisting with choosing a major, determining career options, finding internships and jobs, writing resumes and preparing for interviews.
A recurring theme throughout our conversation was that authenticity trumps perfection. An important reminder for everyone, no matter what stage of your career you are in.
If you are struggling to determine what degree to pursue, or if you are a job seeker looking for tips to stand out - this episode is for you.
McKenna delivers real, actionable tips for you to implement immediately to elevate your job search.
AND as an added bonus, she shares a delicious mocktail recipe that is great for the kiddies - - and is a great drink to spike for those feeling extra 'festive'.
Cheers to making dreams come true,
....and as McKenna says, 'calm down sister, you are going to be OK 😀
