Before working with a DeVry Career Services Advisor, I was stuck on understanding the hiring and interviewing process and navigating how to transition from one career to the next. My advisor was able to give a lot of pointers during our very first meeting! I am excited to see how this process goes and hope to pursue my dream job with a Master in Public Administration, with the assistance of DeVry.
