Visually Pleasing

Anyone who has searched in the job market knows that the task of applying to jobs can be a bit monotonous (but very necessary, of course). Constantly reiterating basic information, strategically selling your best and brightest qualities depending on the job description and highlighting your past experience becomes, well, a bit of a bore. Lets be honest, how many people do you know that are truly thrilled when going through the process of looking for a new job? Probably none.

Unfortunately, I do not have a solution to this problem; however, there is an alternative way to present this information that may give your monotonous process a bit of flare. Vizify and Vizualize.me are two websites that group your information and present it in a graphical bio format. Other than posting these links on Linkedin, at the moment, I am not sure how else to present this to employers. But it does make your accomplishments look very….well, dazzling. Check out some examples of the two layouts below.

Women in Business

Women in Business is a non-profit club that I co-founded at Northeastern University back in the Spring of 2009. Through some innovation, collaborative spirit, and much help from my amazing peers, this club has launched to be a truely amazing resource for students to utilize and apply their business skills that have been learned in the classroom into the real world.

Women in Business is aimed to unite students of all majors and genders to provide resources and support before entering the workforce. We aim to connect and engage NU students to the successes and challenges of women in business through meetings, guest speakers, events, and philanthropic work.

This foundation established has been such a success story this semester. Our speaker series consisted of topics on corporate ladders, time management, and sexuality in the workplace. We held events such as Banana Republic: Learn to Dress Professionally, attended the Harvard Dynamic Women in Business Conference, created Social Media Workshops educating on the imporance and growth of LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter, as well as Excel Workshops which focused on pivot tables and mail merges.  This semester we also participated in a very successful philanthropic event, Relay for Life, which raised over $130,000 towards cancer research. You can view a video from this event on the following link:

I am so proud of all the work accomplished this semester. Special thanks to the fabulous Executive Board this semester, Alex Avila, Veronica Domenchello, Alisha Albinder, and Stephanie Simmons, who helped make all these events happen.

Women in Business is not stopping our momentum now. We are always looking for corporate sponsor, guest speakers, and innovative ideas. If you would like to learn how to support Women in Business or would like to get involved or in contact, please email contactnuwib@gmail.com or visit
