For years the Nicholson School of Communication has educated brilliant minds and Kira Bradley is one of them. Bradley graduated in the spring of 2018 with a degree in human communication and already has her dream job.
Since participating in the program, Bradley accepted a position as content strategist for Valtech, a global digital agency focused on business transformation.
“The headquarters are in Paris and I have meetings with my boss through Skype,” said Bradley. “I get to work from home, travel and do project management, which is incredible.”
As a student, Bradley participated in the NSC Mentoring Program, which pairs current students with alumni in order to help them transition from school to careers. Created in 2016, the program aims to provide NSC students with the skills, resources and connections needed to establish and maintain set academic and career goals.
Bradley’s mentor, managing director of advising and student services, Rebecca Morales, helped to improve her resume, acquire an internship for credit and offered meaningful career guidance.
“As a member of the program, you get together with your mentor once or twice a month to discuss your curriculum, future opportunities and internships,” said Bradley. “You also go to socials hosted by the program where you meet and talk to other mentors and students about the experience.”
Mentorship made the difference, Bradley said. She encourages every NSC student to try the program as she did and hopefully they will soon secure their dream jobs.
