Allison Starcevich

When Allison has a question about class, she drops by to see her professor. When she has a question about job opportunities, it’s just as easy to connect with the Office of Career Development.

“At North Central, you can always find help,” she says. “The Career Development staff is always more than willing to sit down with you and figure out potential jobs or internships to apply for. Then you can do mock interviews.”

It’s not unusual for professors also to contribute to job searches.

“They have professional networks that help students get a jump-start on their careers,” she says.

Allison plans to enter the corporate world after she graduates.

“A management degree is applicable almost anywhere in every field,” she says.
