"The Career Center is a great asset to the University because they really care about assisting you in deciding what directions you may want to take in your college career and they provide so many resources to assist you in achieving those goals."

"During my time at Augusta State, I set my mind on pursuing an internship with notable companies such as CMT, The Gospel Music Channel (now known as "gmc,") and Fox News. Melissa Hudson from Career Services showed me how to form a resume and create a cover letter that would reveal every aspect of my individuality while highlighting my professional work ethics. Not only did I get one of the internships that I wanted; I got all three! Now my resume is loaded with experience from my internships and I've developed the interview skills to back it up! I received a job with gmc, doing what I love, only two months after graduation -- and my first promotion six weeks later. What a blessing!"

"I obtained an internship at Verge Magazine!  When I went to the career center to inquire on my career field they gave me contacts and opportunities that day.  Once I got an interview and Melissa Hudson kept in touch and gave me tips until the morning of the interview. I couldn't have asked for a better team that would care about my personal needs and desires in my field."

I have been writing since the ripe old age of twenty-one, and I now have over twenty publishing credits. Currently, I sell advertisements with Billboard Guru and I write for Metro Spirit and Parent Magazine. Check out my cover story at www.metrospirit.com and click on Archives. Look for the publication that reads “Jobless with a degree”. But, while at ASU I needed an internship to graduate.  I was clueless about the process. I sat in Melissa Hudson’s office at the Career Center talking about my possibilities. Even though I was quite nervous, my drive for success was nurtured through her encouragement, guidance, and support during our meetings. Melissa and I designed my resume and networking system together. Don’t overlook the career center for assistance!

"When I learned that I could actually work in my career field while still attending college, I became so excited.  From that day, I formed a relationship with the career center that educated me on how to effectively transition from my college career to the business world.  At the Career Center I received constructive resume critiques, interview training, and great mentorship.  Collectively I feel that these new skills have not only tailored me into a great future business professional but a leader as well."

"I am a music MAT student that attended Melissa Hudson's resume workshop back in early March.  I used the packet of information and resources she provided to prepare for a job interview at a local music store. As a result, I was well prepared for the interview.  Now I have been offered a position teaching private lessons!  The workshop has been invaluable to me. It has really helped my confidence."

"Like all faculty and staff, the career centr, always seem to make such a positive impact on the lives of ASU students. Taking shortcuts may be easer; however, being challenged and working hard is always so much more rewarding."

"I landed a full time job at SRS, with V3 Technical Services, as a project assistant. I work as part of a team that provides support services to the Citizens Advisory Board at SRS. My advice to students is to Intern, intern, intern. People love a hard worker and if you do a good job at your internship, it can lead to a paid position. Also, get involved on campus!"

"I never thought going back to college would be an option after after I suffered a massive stroke in September 2006 in Korea. When my military career ended tragically, ASU paved a different road of success. To be a stroke survivor back in school and they have been AWESOME!!"
