“As an exchange student at Scottsdale Community College, I can state that the Emerging Professionals Seminar Series was one of the steps I took, thanks to my advisor, Carole Redden. Professionalism is an essential point to learn, and this series covered every detail and strategy that all newly graduated students need. After completing the seminar, all of my interviews resulted successfully; I had two internships during my program year and now I have been accepted into a hotel's reservation department. I feel all ready to make a wide stride to the professional world, and I will be eternally grateful for it.”
