Whats Going on in Career Advising?

The Office of Career Advising and Development serves as a resource to help students looking for internships, edit their resumes, and develop their interview skills. This year Career Advising and Development has welcomed several new staff members to expand Le Moyne’s professional internship opportunities for students of all majors.

Executive in Residence Dr. Laila Kobrossy Audi will focus on internship opportunities and broadening students’ experience learning. Audi has a Ph.D. in biochemistry from McGill University and two postdoctoral fellowships from Harvard and Syracuse University, as well as vast experience working  with startup companies in the mobile technology and healthcare fields. She is located in Reilly Hall 342 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Professor Leslie Streissguth has joined the department as Associate Director. While continuing as a professor in the Department of Communication and Film Studies and working in administrative support to the College of Arts and Sciences, Streissguth will provide a comprehensive approach to students searching for real-life experience in the arts and humanities. She is available in Reilly 342 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from noon to 3:30 p.m. and on Tuesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Streissguth intends to prepare students for out-of-classroom experiences in the liberal arts through experiential learning by assisting faculty colleagues, as well as internships.

The Principal Designated School Official [PDSO] for international students at Onondaga Community College, Hui Chen also joins the Career Advising staff as the  Assistant Director of Global Education. Chen is responsible for servicing international students and for coordinating all study abroad activities, as well as advising the International Student Club. She is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Reilly 342 .

Students should also note that international internships may be available depending on their study abroad program.

Interested students should email Director Patti Bevans, Administrative Assistant Becky Zellar, Streissguth, Dr. Audi or Career Counselor Chrissy Fahey to set up a meeting time. If editing a resume, students are asked to bring a hard copy. Freshmen are encouraged to stop by or schedule a meeting for future reference.
