"Overall I found the Developing Connections event to be extremely beneficial for all students in our major. It gave veteran students like me a platform to express our passion for the organizations we interned with, as well as the opportunity to showcase the knowledge I gained about the organization I interned with. Furthermore, I found it to be extremely well organized and gave students and organizations the opportunity to network and discuss the field. Developing Connections has lead me to become even more curious and excited to see where I may end up in terms of my first position in the HDFS field." 

Tatum Swallow '15, HDFS major

"The Developing Connections event I attended this past Fall was fantastic!  During the event I was able to meet and interview four potential teachers for our Center. I met three other students that did not get a chance to interview with us, however; they visited our booth and either contacted me later or left their resume with us to contact them. I was extremely impressed with the quality of students I interviewed. As of today, I have hired two of the BGSU students from the event and have offered two others an internship with our Center. 

I look forward to coming to another Developing Connection event! Thank you for helping the students really prepare for a career/work experience!"
