Alexi Stershic, Senior, Chemical Engineering major
VU Highlights: Villanova Varsity Track & Field Team (Javelin), Career Assistant, Engineering PEERS, Intramural Sports, AIChE, and Society of Women Engineers!
Career Aspirations: To work in the defense industry and to lead a team of engineers as a manager or director in the future. I would also like to get my MBA and masters in some field of engineering.
Most Unusual Job: Cashier at Best Buy. You would be surprised at how many people do not know anything about technology. It was also always entertaining watching people who would try and return things they destroyed, like shattered laptops and phones.
Favorite Career Center Resource: Practice Interviews! It is great to be able to see what you look like to employers before you interview, and it is always interesting to hear how you sound. Also, the career counselors take the time to sit down and review the recording with you which helps tremendously and they can tailor the questions to fit either a standard or behavioral interview.
