Jennifer Mull, A Non-traditional Super Star who found Success!

It is not every day that two people just click, but we did.  Jennifer Mull told me that she made an appointment with me because her teacher, Dr. Marianne Miller, was giving extra credit if you visit the Career Center!  She was not expecting that much from our initial appointment-maybe a quick resume critique.   But our connection was made right away!  The day of her appointment, on September 26, just happen to be the day that my student Chris Quirk and I were sitting out in the Career Center lobby.   He had just presented me with a bouquet of flowers because I helped him find a new IS position.  She overheard some of our exchange and after Chris left, she said, “Wow, I wish that job success would happen to me.”  I said, “When this happens to you, you have to promise me that I can share your story on my blog, with a picture!” She agreed.

We talked, and talked, and talked.  I wanted to understand more about her and how she thought I could help.   Jen is a senior, full-time, non-traditional, human resources student with a family.  She was working full-time; however, she was recently laid off.  Immediately, I zeroed in on all of her job-related skills in both human resources and  accounting and strong work ethic.  Unfortunately, I could also tell that the layoff really shook her confidence.

My plan was to keep her encouraged and to quickly get her back into job search mode ASAP.  At the conclusion of our appointment, I gave her some homework.  Because some employers move very quickly, I asked Jen to watch the blog, Hirebusrams, and other job sites very closely and pick out positions of interest.  Also, I asked her to send a list of jobs she applied to so I am kept abreast and of course so I can see what attracts her to particular positions.  This was a very important part of our plan so we can work together throughout the process.  Although we did not have any additional face to face meetings, we still connected often via email and the phone.    Within a week Jen had an interview; however, she did not receive an offer.  Two weeks later, Jen was just about to consider a part-time position, when two, new, full-time positions were posted via the blog.    When I first saw the job ad, I thought of her skill set and strongly suggested that she apply to both.  Although she was busy, she found the time to submit her resume.

When the employer took one look at her resume, she emailed me and asked, “Darlene, can I contact your student?”  I said, “Yes, be my guest!”

I am sure you know how this story ends.  Jen interviewed for the position on October 30 and they immediately offered her the position!  Her offer came exactly 5 weeks after we met.  Jen called, emailed and visited to share her good news with me and to bring me a very special card.

Jen’s story is my favorite successes.  She has already started her new position as an Accountant at The Payments Company and she says she is LOVING it!

Takeaways from Jennifer’s success:

  • Non-traditional students have so much on their plates, but they can find success!  Stay encouraged and seek people that can provide support.
  • Have multiple skills.  For Jen, it is both human resources AND accounting.
  • Be willing to put the work into job searching.  Do your part of the process by networking, building your skills, communicating your skills, and studying job descriptions.
  • Stay job ready at all times with an updated resume and prepare to build a cover letter.
  • Constantly look for opportunities;  don’t procrastinate when you see something of interest.  Often times, the positions have a quick turnaround and the one time you don’t watch the job sites may be the one time an amazing opportunity may slip right on through.
