Today Lisa was out of the office so I (Dave) asked our amazing assistant Colleen to get out from behind the camera and talk with me. We discussed the concept of researching employers to make a good first impression.

Dave Isbell is the Alumni Career Service Coordinator at Michigan State University. He has been a Career Coach since 1999. He is also pursuing a Master’s in Social Work/Family Studies at MSU. When he is not working or studying, he is enjoying domestic bliss with his wife and kids, or playing rock music on his bass guitar. You can find him on Twitter (@helpingspartans) and sometimes he writes about compassion, collaboration, and career for this blog, which he owns and begs other Spartans to write for.

Colleen Anthes is the Student Assistant for Alumni Career Services for Dave and Lisa. She’s been working at MSUAA since July. She is a sophomore majoring in Packaging at MSU. Some of the activities she’s involved in include Hall Government and CoPPAC. She is a self-claimed “cat lady in training” (not the crazy kind), and loves movies and music from the 80s. Her experience at MSUAA has helped her grow professionally, and she loves being part of this team. She is looking forward to make a difference in the future by being guided by her team now.
