Jan Lyons, Assistant Director
Working in the Career Resource Center has provided me with a wonderful way to get to know Westminster students. In particular I work with the students from the Gore School of Business and have been so impressed with the students, faculty, and staff that I have met.
I love to help people realize that looking for a job is so much more than looking through the want-ads in the Sunday paper. It is wonderful to see a student’s eyes light up when they realize that there are so many opportunities available to them if they know how to go about looking for them. I love getting paid for something that I would like to do for free.
My Bachelor’s degree is in Political Science from the University of California at Santa Barbara and I have an MBA from Utah State University (USU). I like to provide this background to show that one can (and most do) go from one major and move into new jobs and careers throughout life.
I have worked in private industry (banking, aerospace) and for a number of years in academia. As a lecturer I have kept track of what’s going on in business while teaching, among other classes, marketing, management, operations. For nine years I worked in Career Services at USU and two years at Tufts University in Boston.
A career resource that I particularly like is at www.rileyguide.com. Go to the A-Z search and you won’t believe how comprehensive it is.
Please come to see me when you want to discuss career opportunities, go over or begin a resume or cover letter, do a mock interview, or figure out how to network. Internships are an important way to learn about careers and I would like to help you find one. Hope to meet you soon!
