CAREER

What I'm currently doing/hope to do

I started working for BSC shortly after graduating from UCSB in June 2017, I accepted my job offer prior to graduating. As a HR Generalist I am responsible for everything HR related from benefits, payroll, and recruiting, to organization design, diversity and inclusion efforts, employee relations investigations that may end in termination. I worked in the Valencia, CA office for 3 months and then relocated to Maple Grove, Minnesota in September 2017.

ADVICE

How to maximize your AOC experience?

  • Advice #1: At the end of the day, a undergrad degree is an undergrad degree, no matter what it is, it is all about how you use it to get a job. History doesn’t connect with HR but I made it work.


  • Advice #2: Being a history major requires a lot of time and effort if you truly want to learn and be good at it, so be prepared to be home on Friday and Saturday nights reading or researching.


  • Advice #3: When taking COC classes do some research to ensure they will most likely transfer to your top 3 college picks. It will be extra work for you down the road if you have classes that don’t transfer.


  • Advice #4: If interested in HR, a lot of knowledge is learned on the job, so start looking for internships for smaller companies who don’t mind having someone with no experience.


  • Advice #5: Don’t be afraid to go to school in a different state or to accept a job in another state (or country), go where the best opportunity for you is.
