  • I lost my job during the pandemic as a hotel purchasing manager. It has been tough on the industry, but we are slowly finding jobs in our field. I attended a few of the Take 30 sessions offered by the Center for Student Professional Development (CSPD) and learned so much. I applied the knowledge I got from the sessions and just landed the position that always wanted.
