Role: As part of the Employer Relations Team, Crystal proactively cultivates relationships with Long Island employers through the Federal Job Locator Development program for part-time jobs, and with regional and national employers for co-ops and paid summer internships, focusing on engineering & technology companies. Crystal also provides career advisement to students in support of experiential opportunities, internships, co-ops, and part-time employment.
Personal/Professional Background: Crystal joined the Career Center in November 2016 and is excited to serve Stony Brook University students and graduates. Prior to joining the Career Center team, Crystal discovered her passion for career services during her 11 years in the Career Development Office at St. John’s University School of Law. Throughout that time, Crystal worked with numerous employers, serving as liaison between students and employers, and advertising job opportunities to the law school community. She also developed relationships with students and graduates while advising and counseling them on navigation of their careers. She earned a Master of Business Administration degree in Executive Management and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Politics from St. John’s University.
Favorite part about working at the Career Center: My favorite thing about the work we do is our mission in strengthening the bridge between higher education and the working world! We serve as professionals facilitating student development while preparing and connecting them with the rest of their lives and to our local communities. Seeing the results of our work- in happy employers sharing their positive experiences in teaming with us, and in employed students excited about their future- is the best part!
