Professional Bio:

Maureen is an innovative professional with over 20 years' experience in higher education with a focus on career counseling and development. After working for eight years with students in Krannert's full-time residential graduate program, she shifted focus to two new populations: Krannert undergraduate students and Krannert Executives in the EMBA and IMM programs. Whether in person, on the phone or via Skype, Maureen is always eager to assist with and support students in their professional development; current services provided for all populations include: career strategy review, career resource education, resume and correspondence critiques, interview skill practice, and salary negotiation feedback. In addition, Maureen works with international students as they complete the Curricular Practical Training Process (CPT).

A large portion of Maureen's work for the undergraduates revolves around teaching Management 301: Management Career Lectures which guides approximately 300 students each semester in their career development and internship/job search processes. Maureen recently re-designed the course through the Purdue IMPACT program moving the course from a lecture-oriented presentation format to a mixed format of presentations, experiential activities and student-focused engagement. This course supports the development, refining and enrichment of the 12 competencies within the Launching Business Leaders program as well as the portfolio and job search component initiatives.

Specialties: Career counseling, job search strategies, resume writing and correspondence, career resources, interviewing skills, Curricular Practical Training (CPT).
