SI-CDO’s New Kid on the Block: Emily Mahood Bowman
Hello there SI students, faculty, and staff! I’m Emily Bowman, and I’ll be the trusty Graduate Assistant in the SI Career Development Office. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work amongst the exceptional SI staff while supporting and building relationships with SI students on their career development journeys.
As a first-year MSI student and a recent emigrant from the south, getting accustomed to a new region, a new city, a new school, and new jobs has certainly provided enough excitement to keep me gasping for air. So now that we are one and a half weeks in to the semester, I can breathe again. And I’m ready to start meeting SI students who may need some help preparing their resumes, finding a part-time job, or scoping out internships opportunities for this year.
I am no stranger to working with students, as I’ve spent the last six years working in various student development capacities in higher education. I hold a Master of Education in College Student Personnel Administration from the University of West Florida, as well as my Bachelor of Science in Family and Child Development from Florida State University. While I’ve always enjoyed student affairs and higher education, I knew that something was missing. So here I am at SI, studying social computing... and exploring how I can combine my past experiences with my interest in the information professions.
I encourage you to stop by and meet with me if you are ever in need of any career assistance. I will hold walk-in hours in the SI-CDO every week (which will be advertised in the weekly CDO email), and you are welcome to make an appointment with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And of course, what kind of social computing student would I be without a shout-out about my various sites on the web? Feel free to connect with me on facebook.com/emilymahood and linkedin.com/in/emilymahood, just to name a few. Bonus points to anyone who can find me elsewhere on the web!
Have an awesome week!
