PackCareersChat EP. 99. Managing Everyday Stressors, the Weight of SARS-CoV-2, and Our Personal Saboteurs

“We just have to take a deep breath and keep going,” said Dr. Jessica Anastopoulos, today’s podcast guest joined by special host student Morgan Ayscue. Dr. Anastopoulos is a practicing physical therapist who just recently switched jobs and began working with the geriatric population. She has experienced the impact of SAR-CoV-2 firsthand in her patients, and it has also taken a toll on her personally. However, Dr. Anastopoulos explains that if you are truly passionate about what you do, as she is with helping people, the temporary feelings of hopelessness are worth it in the long run. Check out today’s podcast as we explore ways to combat that stress and also learn a bit about Shirzad Chamine’s personal saboteur assessment! Find out your saboteur here- https://www.positiveintelligence.com/assessments/ In addition, if you want to take the Women in the Workforce Honors Seminar where podcast interviewing of amazing female role models like Jessica is taught, reach out to mbullock@ncsu.edu!

PackCareersChat EP. 98. Trust in Food & Trust in Yourself: Kinsie Rayburn’s Advice as a Conservationist

In this week’s episode, student Cassidy McCarty has the pleasure of interviewing Kinsie Rayburn of Trust in Food. In the Women in the Workforce class, they are assigned the task of interviewing a woman whose career they admire, and as a Freshman in Environmental Science still looking for a career to pursue, Kinsie was a resource in her area of Conservation Agriculture. Listen as she details all that is possible as a conservationist, the super hands-on and more traditional approach she experiences, her work in the Peace Corps, and the importance of serving by listening to what the people need, instead of just doing what you’ve been sent to do.

The NC State Career Development Center works with campus career partners to further support our students and build a lifetime foundation of career success. Our partners offer specialized career services to their specific colleges. We work closely together to ensure students can achieve their career goals.

Meet: Sara Lane, Director of CALS Career Services
“I work with a team of counseling graduate interns and peer Career Coaches to serve all students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, from our Ag. Institute Associate degree program all the way through Ph.D. We provide one-one-one career counseling and coaching, present to CALS classes and clubs about career development topics, and connect our students to employers through career fairs and networking events. I graduated from CALS in 2001 with degrees in Agricultural Business Management and Extension Education, so it has been a thrill to come back and serve students who are sharing some of the same experiences I had as an undergraduate.”

Her career tip for students is: “I often tell students not to worry too much about finding the perfect job or career path when they graduate. Most people change jobs and even careers throughout their lives, so the first job is just that - a first job. Personally, I tried out three different careers before finding my calling as a career advisor when I was 33 years old. Students should choose a first job they enjoy and are good at, and they'll figure out the "perfect" job and career later on.”

The NC State Career Development Center works with campus career partners to further support our students and build a lifetime foundation of career success. Our partners offer specialized career services to their specific colleges. We work closely together to ensure students can achieve their career goals.

Meet: Kathleen Fenner (she/her/hers) has been the Director of Career and Academic Advising for the College of Design at NC State University since 2016. She provides career and academic advising to undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students in the College of Design. She also serves as the Secretary for the North Carolina Association of Colleges and Employers. Previously, she worked at a small private university as well as a community college. Kathleen graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a Master of Education in Student Personnel Administration in Higher Education. Previously, she earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Concentration in Marketing from Indiana University. Kathleen lives in Raleigh with her husband and two dogs. She enjoys hiking in the mountains, traveling, reading, and playing board games with friends!

Develop an introduction of yourself to that provides an overview of who you are as a professional. You could highlight your strengths, skills, relevant experience that could be from an internship, work or volunteer role, educational background, noteworthy research or projects, and your on-campus or community leadership activities. You might bring it to a close with your current career goal, passion, or a conversation starter inviting the other person to share a bit as well. Try writing this out then practice out loud. The idea is that you're always ready when a networking opportunity presents itself to start building relationships with others.
