“Working as the CareerHub administrator has provided me with a great deal of opportunities to develop myself professionally. I have gained valuable skills in customer service and time management as well as in working autonomously and collaboratively. I anticipate these skills will be highly beneficial to me when seeking employment post-ACU.”
