Seidenberg student Douglas Kandl 13′, 14′ featured in Pace Pulse

When you ask students why they chose Pace, you’ll hear a lot of great answers: from the location to the internships to the small classroom experience. But for Seidenberg student Douglas Kandl ’13, ’14 what drew him to Pace was a matter of national security: the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Information Assurance Program, a program that only select universities designated as National Centers of Academic Excellence have access to. Pace is one of them.

The Counselor Is In!

Starting today the Seidenberg school has our very own Career Counselor. Here is a note from our newest member of the Seidenberg Community.

Happy summer, Seidenbergers!

My name is Ani Lucia, and I am Seidenberg’s shiny new career-counselor-in-residence. I’ll be hanging out with you guys in 163 William a couple times a week to help you with all your career needs – from internship opportunities, resumes, and interview practice, to “Who am I and what the <bleep> do I do with my life?!”

If you haven’t found a summer internship yet, there still are a ton of opportunities available. Shoot me an e-mail (alucia@pace.edu) telling me what type of internship you’re looking for, and I can help connect you with employers.

Starting in the fall, I’ll be giving workshops from time to time that are tailor made to you guys’ and gals’ career interests and needs, so if you have any ideas or topics that you’d like covered, let me know.

Your trusty staff and I are in the process of planning an awesome Welcome Week event, so keep an eye out later in the summer for more news about that!

If you have any questions, need help with anything, or just want to say hi, e-mail me or stop by 163 William between 2pm and 5pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. I’m really looking forward to getting to know you guys!
