Afraid to network? Make connections instead

I interviewed Class of 2010 grad Kellyn Springer and she shared her variety of experiences that led to her developing strong skills in connecting with all types of people.  She studied abroad in Thailand, and landed two internships in the U.S. Congress.

She currently works for Wake Forest on the alumni relations team.  In her role, she meets with alumni who willingly offer their time and advice to students.  Kellyn encourages students to take advantage of the wonderful community of supporters – alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends – who love Wake Forest and love to help students.  Kellyn_Springer_56k
