No matter where you are in your job search, sometimes finding the right opportunity requires the right amount of patience and persistence – and a little expertise. This can be particularly true if you are a student or job-seeker trying to juggle multiple commitments such as school, family, current jobs or other expectations.
Rachelle Laguerre, a 2018 graduate of DeVry University, completely understands this perspective. As a single mother of three, Rachelle partnered with a career advisor throughout her five years at DeVry for job search motivation and advice, along with support on her education journey. Having a career advisor to consult for support proved especially helpful in 2014, when Rachelle relocated to Orlando for new opportunities. Life brimmed with changes and challenges at the time: adapting to a slower pace of life compared to her previous home in Brooklyn, moving into her new home, finding a job in a new city and caring for her children. Not to mention attending weekly classes online and grappling with an unexpected life event that rattled her world.
"During my time at DeVry, I was in a very bad car accident." Rachelle said. But that didn’t stop her from successfully completing her degree. Rachelle credits her faith – along with her ability to take advantage of the right resources, like career advising – for her resilient progress despite turbulent times. By the time she graduated from DeVry, Rachelle had landed her first internship at City Hall in Lake Mary, Florida and now works as a Human Resources Support Specialist for LEGOLAND Florida Resort.
Here are just a few ways she leveraged her career advisor to succeed in her job search:
