After getting my MFA at Moore, the Locks Career Center staff assisted my job search in personable and effective ways. I was interested in gaining varied experience in the field in order to move toward my career goals, and both Belena Chapp and Veronica Scarpellino helped make that happen. They readily offered professional advice while sharing opportunities that catered to my abilities and were suited to my interests. They took the effort to get to know me personally - even in brief meetings - to help me develop my career.
