Katie Greene

Career Advising Fellow

Katie Greene is a 2016-2017 Career Advising Fellow. She serves as a career advisor to undergraduate students from all majors, while predominantly focusing on students from the School of Communications. Although Katie has worked in a variety of educational settings, her passion for higher education and career development was confirmed while working at a small liberal arts college in MA for three years. The experience prepared her well for this fellowship at Elon University, as she focuses her energies on the career and professional development of its students.
Katie is happy to assist students with career exploration, job and internship search strategies, and interview techniques, as well as cover letter and resume preparation. To make sure students know about the many services offered through the SPDC, Katie offers engaging presentations providing resources for students wanting to be, or remain engaged in their career development journey. Additionally, Katie teaches a Transitions Strategy course, focused on life post-graduation for Elon seniors.
