Career Services

Cori Montgomery

Cori MontgomeryI’m a Junior at Central Washington University and I'm majoring in Family and Consumer Sciences Career and Technical Education. I am extremely passionate about the work in Career Services and plan on teaching high school students about Career Development and Professionalism when I graduate. Besides working at Career Services and taking classes, I love to meet new people, go camping, snowmobiling, play sports and exercise, and of course eat lots of food!

My least favorite job was working as a Courtesy Clerk at a big grocery corporation. My least favorite duties included cleaning the bathrooms, rounding up carts in the pouring rain, and dealing with exceptionally grumpy customers. Unfortunately, the management was unorganized and the respect at the work place was just as bad, so I realized that this wasn’t the type of company I wanted to work for. 

My favorite job would be working at Career Services. I worked at the Career Service Center at Western Washington University where I gained my initial experience and training. After two years at Western, I decided to transfer to Central Washington University where I was hired on at Career Services and became a peer advisor. So far, I feel that the experiences while working at CWU’s Career Services have been very rewarding as well as informational. Working at Central’s Career Services Center has been an amazing experience especially when surrounded with people who are passionate about helping students, alumni and community members!
