Meet Your New CBE - Career Center Liaison, Jennifer Bennett

I am so thrilled to join the Center for Career & Professional Development as the College of Business and Economics liaison! CCPD provides students with career education and connections by actively developing opportunities for students to connect with industry partners and alumni through externships, internships, co-ops, immersion trips, career expos, full-time positions, on-campus interviews, and career programs.

Prior to joining CCPD, I worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Boston within the Assurance (Audit) practice, specifically within the Technology industry. I am a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and I received my Master of Science in Accountancy and Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Bentley University.

I am excited to begin working with the CBE students and looking forward to a great year!

Additionally, please make note of some other changes to CCPD:

  • Lucie is out! Handshake is in! Students are invited to create an account and profile on Handshake (Lehigh’s Career Management Platform) to be able to:

    • Schedule appointments with me

    • ​Create a customized job/internship search and apply to opportunities

    • View information regarding times/locations/details of our various career and employer events

  • We will be offering group sessions every week: Monday – Thursday from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

    • ​Refer to Handshake for the specific sessions offered each day

    • Sessions will include topics: Resumes/Cover Letters, Job/Internship Search, LinkedIn/Networking, and Interviewing

    • Due to the large volume of appointments requested during on-campus recruiting, our staff is opening up more opportunities to meet the needs of students outside of meeting one on one to discuss basic career exploration topics (i.e., how to write a resume/CL, how to create a LinkedIn, etc.)

    • Students are encouraged to attend the group sessions as well as the resume labs & quick questions sessions (dates and times on Handshake!) prior to scheduling a one-on-one appointment

Mark your calendars! Lehigh’s annual Career Expo is on September 14! Students are encouraged to visit Handshake to learn about the various ways that they can best prepare. Remember, you only have one chance to make a first impression!
