Czepiel Photo (2)Q: Tell us a bit about what you have done in the past, and what brought you to Clark.

 Sue: I came to Clark IDCE for the opportunity to assist graduate students in finding internships and employment in the fields in which IDCE specializes.  I have worked in Career Development for 20 years and have helped students and graduates in searching for their perfect career.  I am looking forward to helping students to apply for and secure more internships and jobs in their fields of study.  I can help students and graduates with resume writing, cover letter writing, applications for jobs and internships, interview preparation, salary negotiations and career planning.  Please make an appointment so I can meet you!

Q: How did you become interested in career development?

 S: I have been lucky to have worked in Career Development for the past 20 years. I became interested in Career Development after a career as an investigative radio news reporter.  It is a privilege to assist people in achieving their career goals and dreams.

Q: What future ventures do you want to take on next?

S: I would like to bring more employers and alumnae to campus, either in-person or via Skype or other interactive means.  I would also like to position IDCE at Clark as the “University of Choice” for nonprofit, private, government, NGO and research organizations who seek employees and interns.

Q: Any fun facts about your hometown?

S: The town square in my town was donated to the town by John Hancock, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence!
