Student Advisors: Our SUPERHEROES!

Liberal Arts & Business is also the home of four student advisors - our superheros! ICC Student Advisors are great resources for UCD students and alumni. They're trained in helping you find internships and career opportunities as well as many other things. Bring your resumes and cover letters in and they can help you polish them up; or if you don't have one, come in and see them and they'll help you get started. In addition, they have a lot of information that can help you in finding an internship or career that is right for you.

It is always advisable to speak with a Student Advisor specializing in your area of interest. However, all Student Advisors are trained in critiquing resumes. If you would like your resume critiqued and cannot make the scheduled time of your specific Student Advisor, visit one of our other Advisors - they are all eager and willing to help you. Read about our four superheros below and click on their bios for more information about their specialties.

Welcome to the ICC! My name is Bernadette Lagman and I am a third year Economics major and Human Development minor. As an individual with a business background and a passion for healthcare, I aspire to someday explore the healthcare management field. Just this past year I interned at the UC Davis Health Education and Promotion Department and was also the Health Career Connection summer intern at Kaiser Permanente Regional Occupational Health. Like many adventurous college students, I plan to travel abroad and possibly study at the London School of Economics! Here at the ICC, we are more than happy to assist you with your own career journey whether it's starting with a Resume Boost or preparing for your next interview.

Hi! My name is Eileen, and I am a fourth year Human Development major with a minor in psychology. I love interacting with different people, and hope to participate in Camp Adventure or study abroad programs before I graduate. Currently, I am involved in the human development club on campus and intern at Peregrine Preschool whenever I can. Because I enjoy working with students, I am thinking of pursuing a teaching degree after graduation. Please stop by, and I will be happy to assist you with any resume and cover letter writing as well as any other questions regarding the Internship and Career Center.

Hello! My name is Liann and I am a second year sociology and linguistics double major. I love having opportunities to hear about people’s stories; where they come from, their passions, and their aspirations. Last year I interned for the Davis Feminist Film Festival, and hope to continue my involvement this year. After I graduate, my goal is to pursue a Ph.D. degree in sociology so that I can work in research at a university, and hopefully use my research to help people. Please feel free to stop by and talk to me if you need help with your resume, cover letter, or anything else concerning the Internship and Career Center.
