"After applying to several districts, I received a phone call from Solon Middle School, and was invited to interview for a Math Intervention opening. After my interview with the Principal and Vice Principal of Solon Middle School, the Principal called an administrator at Mayfield Middle School, where I student taught. The administrator stated that I would be an asset to the Solon School District. I was immediately offered the Math Intervention long-term substitute position, which was for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year. After teaching for a month and a half, the administration asked to interview me for an 8th Grade opening. The Principal of Orchard Middle School sat in on the meeting as well. After the interview, I received a phone call stating that both Principals wanted to offer me a position. I accepted the 6th Grade Math position at Orchard, and will officially begin August 2013."

The education program provided me with a strong training as well as experience with a variety of placements, ranging from 1st through 5th grade, with many wonderful teachers. My time here at Baldwin Wallace prepared me for the professional world's expectations, which I carried with me to my interview in Chicago Last month.

Most recently, I was able to articulate and showcase my BW experiences during an interview at the Cleveland Clinic. As a result, I have been accepted into the Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation Exercise Physiology Internship Program. I look forward to continuing to build upon the experiences I have had at Baldwin Wallace University as I transition into the professional world."
Minor: Child & the Family
Undergraduate Degree/Grad Year: Bachelor of Science, 2009
Graduate Degree/Grad Year: Master of Education in School Counseling, Kent State University, 2011
"After graduating from Baldwin Wallace in 2009 with a Bachelor's in Psychology, I went on to pursue a Master of Education in School Counseling. The education, experience and professional skills that I gained from my years at BW gave me an extra edge as a graduate student in the classroom, and then again when I landed my first full-time position just one month after graduating from my Master's program. I worked as an Enrollment Advisor with a for-profit education institution for a year, and then decided I wanted to be able to use my degrees more fully and for my original intent. I contacted BW Career Services to help with my job search. The BW Career Advisor gave my resume and cover letter the pieces that I had been missing, and within a month I accepted not only a new position but one in my desired field. In my experience achieving both of those things in the current economic times is not an easy task. I was beyond relieved to know that I could come back to my beloved Alma Mater for the help that I needed."
Major: Public Relations
Degree/Grad Year: Bachelor of Arts, 2011
Position Title/Organization: Marketing Recruitment Specialist - Lakeland Community College Holden University Center
"I would have never been prepared to graduate and apply for jobs without all the help from Career Services. Early on I prepared my resume for applying for internships and was lucky enough to have a number of different opportunities while at BW. Everything I learned at my internships, I was able to apply to the job I have now, and made the interview process much easier because I was able to capitalize on my past experience. By attending as many networking events as possible, I was able to connect with Cleveland professionals who in the end helped me find jobs when I was ready to graduate."

Undergraduate Degree/Year: College of Charleston, 2003
Position Title/Organization: Biology Teacher - Bishop Michael Eldon School, Freeport, Bahamas
"Baldwin Wallace has done an outstanding job of building a network of support for students both while earning their degree and after. I found that there was not any adversity that the staff was not willing to help me face and work through together. From guidance with scheduling course work, to help with interviewing and resume skills, and everything in between, I never felt alone. I felt like I was part of a team that really was invested in my success, not just as a student, but in my life. I found it very comforting to know that no matter what I faced, I had people behind me that would go above and beyond to help me achieve my goals. Thanks to the staff there I now have my dream job teaching in the Bahamas."
Position Title/Organization: Inventory Planning Analyst - JM Smucker Company
My four years at BW and interning in Career Services taught me professionalism and work ethic that prepared me well for the business environment. It was a great opportunity to get experience in interviewing and working as a business professional. After college, I began working at the JM Smucker Company in the Customer Service Department. I found the values and hard-working attitude that I learned at BW were a good foundation for my career at Smucker's. This has led me to multiple positions in Customer Service, and most recently being promoted to Analyst with the Supply Planning Department. I built very strong and wonderful relationships with my professors and the staff at BW that I still keep in touch with today. I know my success is a direct result of their guidance and teaching.
