Our guest speaker, Samantha Perrin, began working at the University of Georgia Career Center in July 2016 and is excited to be working with students in MIS, MIT, Computer Science, Math and Statistics! Prior to arriving at UGA, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Alma College (Michigan), followed by a Master of Science in Higher Education from the University of North Dakota where she worked as a graduate assistant in the UND Career Services office. Samantha's interests in Higher Education expand beyond the world of career development into areas including student involvement, fraternity/sorority life, and violence prevention. She is passionate about helping students explore their interests and the ways those interests relate to their career development. She is most excited about helping students realize their potential and connect with opportunities to further their career preparation.
