CareerPassport: What attracted you to CareerPassport?
April: I was very interested in the opportunity to set myself apart from the rest of the students here at UVU through the ELUD portion of the program. In addition, I wanted to ensure that I was doing everything I could to ensure that I would enter into a career that I love and also have the skills necessary to do so. Since I have already been in the workforce prior, I now understand how crucial it is that I am in a field that I enjoy, and CareerPassport allows me to explore all of my options.
CareerPassport: What have you enjoyed most about the program?

CareerPassport: What has been the most beneficial activity you’ve participated in to help you meet your future career goal?
April: The most beneficial activity has been the September Hot Topics. A panel of UVU alumni came and talked about what they wish they had done better in college and it was a real reality check for me to see that not one of them were working in their degree field. I really would like to work in my degree field so it really motivated me to stay on the path I am on so I can obtain the career of my dreams.
