Pac-Man in Switzerland

This is what happens when you mix design students and business students in a castle in Gruyeres, Switzerland. I swear this wasn't planned at all. Kudos to Brandon Weber for editing the video.

Thanks to Stephen R. Covey Group and Huntsman School

The Stephen R. Covey Group is a wonderful organization to intern with and I want to thank them for giving me the opportunity to work with the Great Work, Great Career project. Janita Andersen has become a good friend of mine along with others in the organization as well. I also want to extend a thank you to the wonderful staff of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business and Utah State University's Career Services. Without these people mentoring us along the way throughout the Great Work, Great Career process, I don't know how it would have turned out! Relying on people who have more experience than yourself is very important and Utah State University has plenty of faculty and staff with good experience.

I highly recommend that students at Utah State University, especially in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business, take advantage of the internship program. They can open doors in your life that you never knew were there and I can't imagine my college experience without having applied the principles I learn in class into real life. If a student will visit the internship coordinators, the career accelerators, and Career Services, there is no way he or she wouldn't succeed upon graduation. Each of these three organizations have been very kind to me and true friends in my life.

Stephen R. Covey Certification & Closing Event

Last Tuesday night we celebrated the completion of the Great Work, Great Career Learning Group experience for over 30 students!

To receive certification, students completed the online learning lessons, set goals, attended weekly classes with other students, and made moves towards applying principles into their lives and career searches.

Janita Andersen of the Stephen R. Covey Group joined us once again for the celebration, along with Dr. Chris Fawson, Krystn Clark, and many other influential faculty and staff members of the Huntsman School of Business.

Students received the Stephen R. Covey Certificates one-by-one after a few opening remarks from Janita Andersen and Lynne Pettit, lead facilitator. Following the ceremony, students engaged with employers from over 13 organizations across Utah Valley in a special networking event hosted by Donna Crow and Melissa Scheaffer of Career Services.

Over the last two months of the group, many students have already obtained jobs, internships, and are engaging in applications and interviews towards graduate school. Many others have found their passion and are now striving to attain it. 

We are excited to hear about the many successes of the students from this first ever Great Work, Great Career Learning Group throughout the future!
