What Other Graduates Are Saying

“The Career Development Series was like an executive leadership course designed especially for women. It included valuable skills training along with balanced but factual information about the career landscape for women in Utah. This is a ‘must’ series for those seeking to improve in their careers.”

Shelley Goodell

Vice President of E-Commerce and Guest Services, Megaplex Theatres

“As a young Latina, daughter of immigrants, second generation Utahn, and emerging professional, I found hope that women like me can find opportunities in Utah. I feel especially inspired and motivated by the content provided by the invited companies [and presenters], particularly “Defining Your Career” exercise with Instructure, learning about crisis management, and how to shift your paradigm with FranklinCovey. These were very powerful dialogues. I can’t wait to keep learning…My future already feels full and optimistic.
