Every year ASI hires 300 great Sac State students to work in the various departments and programs. Each of these students bring unique experiences to the work they do and these employment opportunities often supplement the content that they are learning in the classroom. Throughout the year we will highlight some of these former employees and what they are currently doing after graduation.

HOW DID WORKING FOR ASI HELP YOUR CAREER GOALS?

Working for ASI helped me in many ways to get where I am today. It made me more of a confident speaker to large crowds and not be afraid to approach people to start a discussion about a certain topic. My job now requires me to increase membership for a non-profit organization, which is exactly what I did for ASI when I tried to increase involvement on campus or fill committees. My current work with setting agendas, writing reports or sitting on committees is very similar to my four years with ASI, in which I am thankful for the preparations ASI gave me.

ONE THING YOU MISS ABOUT SAC STATE?

I miss everything, but I do not miss the parking tickets.

Take advantage of all the opportunities Sac State and ASI have to offer you. Join clubs and organizations, get involved on campus and enjoy your college career.

HOW DID WORKING FOR ASI HELP YOUR CAREER GOALS?

Working in the marketing department at ASI was a HUGE foundation for my current career. Not only did I learn the basics for things such as executing marketing initiatives for campaigns, managing social media, and overall department awareness, but I also learned how to work with a team to come up creative and successful ideas!

ONE THING YOU MISS ABOUT SAC STATE?

The water bottle refill station. The best invention since sliced bread.

An internship is an absolute must during your last year of college. I promise you, you won’t regret it!

HOW DID WORKING FOR ASI HELP YOUR CAREER GOALS?

My time at ASI working with KSSU helped me learn how to work with a diverse group of people for a common goal and a very limited budget. The promotion, marketing and networking experience I gained at KSSU feeds directly into the work I do now as I connect with people and leaders around the area to promote and attract potential students to Fuller Seminary in Sacramento.
