April McLellan, MEd

Assistant Director, Career Development and Strategic Communications

(she, her, hers)

I particularly love helping students to develop their personal brand and increase their candidacy through strong materials, networking, and industry engagement. I specialize in advertising, public relations, marketing, branding, writing and other roles that require creative problem solving and strong communication skills. As a writer and marketer myself, I create content and strategy for connecting students with Career Center materials in a way that is relatable and approachable. I believe in the power of trying things, learning along the way, growth mindset, resilience and self-compassion.

What do you most enjoy about working at the Career Center?

I love building relationships with students over time – coaching them through exploration, epiphanies, trial-runs, growing experiences, pivots, and successes. I enjoy helping people discover the rewards that come with contributing to the world in a way that taps into their strengths and honors their values.

First post-college job or favorite job before working here?

My first post-college job was driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, managing mobile public relations and planning events in 25 states. I “relished” the opportunity. 😉
