With the help of Career Services, she refined her resume for an opening she found at Raymond James Financial, and was thrilled when they offered her an internship as a copywriter. Two weeks after graduating, Chelsey went to work full-time with the company.
“I’m really grateful for my colleagues’ encouragement and the chance to fulfill what I thought might be an impossible dream–writing for a living. Put yourself out there and look for opportunities even before you feel ready. It’s been difficult to balance the two lives, but if I hadn’t taken the extra step to make that work my future would be a lot less bright.”
