Meet our CPMs!
Hello! My name is Sydnee Lipscomb and I'm a Junior, an Alpha Xi Delta and Biology Major. I'm from Gaithersburg, Maryland and I want to be a trauma surgeon in the army after Medical School. As a Career Peer Mentor, I help students update their resumes, find undergraduate internships or entry level positions, and help students become better prepared to enter the post-graduate workforce. I love being a CPM, it is extremely rewarding to watch students come to my office worried about jobs, internships, or anything like that, and leave more prepared than they felt before. I want to expand how acquainted student's are with this portion of Bethany College, because it is so critical in post-graduate preparation. If you see me on campus feel free to say hello! I'm always willing to help with anything you need!
Hi! My name is Lillie, I am a freshman International Relations and Economics major. I am so excited to be a CPM because I want to show our college community all of the incredible options and resources we have to offer. I spent a year serving with AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC), where I was required to take several classes on resume writing and job searching techniques. As a CPM, I can use this knowledge and experience to assist other students in finding internships and jobs that can match and increase their potential. Every student at Bethany can benefit from career assistance and I hope I can contribute to your success!
Hi! My name is Tiffany and I am a senior majoring in Communications and Public Relations. I am excited to be a CPM so that I can help guide students to career opportunities and show them what the OCPD has to offer and what resources are available. As freshmen, we take many things for granted and don’t take advantage of the opportunities available to us. I know that as a CPM, I can use my experiences and training to better prepare students for internships, graduate school or a career. Giving back means a lot to me, and makes my time worthwhile. I hope to be able to continue to bring career resources to Bethany College students and to help ensure that we are doing everything that we can to ensure that students feel prepared and ready to achieve their career goals!
