Career Coach Spotlight

Here's a Career Tip from our Career Coach, Ray Chan 
"Be natural and genuine when introducing yourself.  Practice, practice, practice multiple variations of your "elevator pitch".  Don't just draft a paragraph, memorize it and thereby sound too scripted.  Strive to be authentic, assertive and concise." A Fun Fact about Ray is that he was on the 1975 UC Berkeley team that won the Northern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (NCIAC) Badminton Championship.
