Career Paths

Next week is Finals week. My Junior year so far has been filled with many highpoints and some low points. But overall, I would have to say that it was pretty successful! Academically, I am doing well; and organizationally I am excited to see what 2nd semester brings! We will be traveling to Chicago again for the 2017 Enactus Regional Conference and presenting our efforts with the Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM). Hopefully, we will advance to Kansas City for the 2017 National Conference! Even though I am practically half way done with my Junior year, I still cannot believe that I am HALF WAY done with JUNIOR year! It is crazy! Second semester will fly by!
As for what my plans are for Winter Break: Regain lost hours of sleep, visit family, & work on a project that is currently in development with a Fortune 500 company. I cannot disclose anything beyond that just yet.  Until next year guys, stay classy!

What I am thankful for

by Patricia on November 21, 2016

in Career Paths

There are many things that I am thankful for. I’m thankful for all the new people that I have met this semester. I have had a busy semester and I’m grateful for that. I hate being bored with nothing to do, and I was working on projects and getting to spend time with people.

I’m really glad that I will be graduating on time; lots of students don’t. I was able to get an internship that I can do online without having to drive anywhere. I am doing well in all my classes. And most importantly I will not be working over the thanksgiving holiday including black Friday! Many people have to do this, and I will not. I made sure to tell my manager that I have exams right after that, which brings me to my other point.

I got the job at Dillards! I will be working as a sales associate over Christmas break and will hopefully get their internship over the summer. I’m pretty sure that I will get it; my manager knows that I really want it and appreciates my persistence! I have training this Saturday and I can’t wait.

Where do I start with this post – Most Influential Professor. Even though I’m still a Junior and haven’t graduated from Fontbonne yet, it would be difficult for me to pick a professor that has influenced me to: Learn More. Be More. IF I had to choose as of this moment, I would have to say Professor Mark Alexander. I feel like this professor does not receive enough credit. Yes, he was a professor of mine at first, but that all changed when he asked me a question (during freshman year) that changed my College Experience and Life for the better, “Why are you not a part of Enactus?” Not knowing how to respond, I agreed to attend that week’s meeting. And the rest was history!

Even though I’ve known him for only three years, he has gone above and beyond what a typical professor does/should do. Speaking from personal experience, he wears many hats (Professor, Faculty Advisor, Mentor, soon to be Ph.D recipient, & many others). He treats his students as if they were not only students but also as if they were his work colleagues and friends! He constantly wants his students to improve themselves. And let me tell you, I’ve improved myself and have done things that I did not think I could have done without his guidance (represented Fontbonne at a National Level – TWICE)!!! Not only is he the Faculty Advisor for Fontbonne Enactus (which I am the President of), he has many valuable connections! If it was not for him, I would not have joined the Regional Business Council and had Kevin Demoff (COO/EVP of Football Operations) of the former St. Louis Rams, now Los Angeles Rams; along with several other Top-Level Executives from various other companies (some Fortune 500 Companies) as contacts that are one tap away from my PHONE!!! Above all of that, Professor Mark Alexander has his own Scholarship fund that aids certain students (inner-city students) here at Fontbonne!!! Seriously, Professor Mark Alexander is the true definition of MVP (Most Valuable Professor). Until next time guys, stay classy!

Have you learned what your purpose in life is? Have you decided upon a career at Fontbonne that will allow you to reach your purpose? Do you believe it’s teaching? Working within a medical setting? Helping in the deaf community? Computer technology? Management?

If you have not thought about your life’s purpose, do you know what brings you pleasure? What comes easy to you? What do you “love” to do whether being paid or not? If you can answer one of these questions, you’ve probably found what your purpose is.

NOW WALK IN IT! There’s someone out there that needs you!

Getting Involved Makes a World of a Difference!!

by Candance September 19, 2016

As an undergrad I was involved with the social work club. I wasn’t able to do as much as I’d like to due to being a non traditional student and having children at home to take care of. But now that my children are a bit older. It’s still a task, but I’m currently a […]

But, I soon realized I wanted to get into the health field and found myself fascinated with dietetics. I chose Fontbonne not only because of their beautiful […]

by Lauren August 1, 2016
