With graduation just around the corner, the seniors are preparing to finally leave the Berry Bubble. 

Berry College’s Career Center has put on around 150 events this year to help prepare seniors and other upperclassmen for the job force. These events included mock interviews, internship workshops, networking events and Worthwhile Work sessions. 

“We plan these different events so that the students are the best prepared for the job market,” Career Center Director Sue Tarpley said. 

Each senior has a new journey that is just about to start. For many, it will be immediately entering the work force. Public relations major Anna Walker said she is excited to be moving to Orlando to start her job at the Student Leadership University, where she will be working as a program and administrative assistant. Accounting and finance major Nick O’Conner will start work at AON, an insurance company. Leah Berndt is going to be a Registered Nurse in the Progressive Care Unit at St. David’s Medical Center in Austin, Texas. Berndt is looking forward to “taking care of cardiac and neuro patients as well as patients’ undergoing cardiac procedures.” 

For other seniors, the next step will be to further their education. Senior Rebekah Mason has chosen to attend the Briarwood Fellows program in Birmingham, Ala., a selective Christian program designed to help college graduates transition into the workforce. 

However, not every senior has their future plans all set in stone. But the Career Center continues to offer students tips to build their resume and continue to more effectively apply for jobs or identify other areas that students are passionate about pursuing after graduation on May 5.
