Cristo Rey San Jose Jesuit High School, Corporate Work Study Program - Special Projects Fellow
Management Information Systems Major and Business Analytics Minor
Home Town: Santa Clarita, California
Summary of your responsibilities in your fellowship role
My main tasks consisted of finding internship opportunities for CRSJ alumni with partners of the school, creating professional career resources like resume-building or cover letters, making newsletters for alumni to stay in touch with the CRSJ community, 1-on-1 mentoring/tutoring with alumni, Salesforce maintenance, and alumni database cleaning.
In what ways are you making a positive contribution to your organization/department?
I am providing individualized help to people within the community and presenting/supporting opportunities that are not as easily accessible to these marginalized communities. Additionally, I help the Cristo Rey alumni community stay connected with one another by reconnecting with the high school internship companies and supervisors.
What are 1-2 aspects of your Fellowship that have been most rewarding or helpful to you so far?
The most rewarding aspects of my Fellowship are definitely networking and relationships I have cultivated within Cristo Rey San Jose and outside. The team I work with is the most supportive and diverse team I have worked with.
What would you recommend to LSB students who want to make a difference in the community?
Find organizations that same the same values as you and speak to your self-interest/identity! Researching stories within a community or attending public events hosted by social justice organizations is a great way to get to know people in the community and form relationships.
