After graduation, Lindsay did some traveling and eventually moved back to Portland to work in a doctor’s office. She was looking for jobs tailored towards her degree in Human Resources, but the job market was very tough. She continued to stay positive and apply for as many jobs as possible. Her reward was well worth the effort.
“About a month ago I received a call for an interview that followed a job offer from a company in Reno, NV. I got offered to start and establish this companies Human Resources program and also help in accounting. It is a rapidly growing company that owns and manages retirement homes. Fresh out of college, this is a dream job for me! To be able to start fresh in a growing company and basically build their HR program is amazing. I feel very lucky and am looking forward to embarking on this new career and adventure.
The reason I got the job is because of the internship I did with Dr. Henkels. My supervisor from the internship referred me for the job because he had been doing some consulting for the new company I will be working for. I knew my internship was valuable, but I had no idea it would get me an amazing job like this…I think the opportunities I have gotten are a direct result of my education, in particular, what I learned from [my professors] and the help I received.”
