Hi everyone! My name is Kelly and I'm from Andover, MA. I'm a senior in Mechanical Engineering, and it's my second year as a Peer Advisor for WPI's Career Development Center. I'm also in one of the sororities on campus, Phi Sigma Sigma, and a part of EPICS (Engineering Projects In Community Service). I'm going to be keeping you updated on my senior year and what I'm doing to figure out my life after college (jobs, grad school, etc). Enjoy!

So I’m actually fairly happy with my job search progress over winter break. Although I feel like I could have always done just a little bit more, I did get some significant things acomplished; I contacted friends, family, neighbors and sorority sisters asking them to help pass my resume along in their company, and applied […]

I have to admit, I didn’t get quite as much job searching done over Thanksgiving break as I had hoped to do…but I’m not that surprised about it either. I guess I always tell myself that I have tons of time over break to do everything I’ve been putting off, but then as soon as […]

So I just finished having coffee in the campus center with one of the sophomores in my sorority.  We were both working on homework, and she mentioned that she didn’t know if she was in the right major. She talked about not knowing what major she wanted, what she wanted to possibly get a graduate […]
