Sophomore helps local non-profits
Lakeland sophomore Angela Carollo's career path will require her to find ways to make customers happy.
Her cooperative education jobs with the Sheboygan's Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts and Above & Beyond Children's Museum are giving her a lot of experience in understanding customer needs.
The graphic design major put her skills to the test at the Weill Center where she helped design show programs, fundraising pieces, posters, fliers and other work. It was a hands-on job that allowed her to learn customer preferences as she delved more into the creative process and time management.
At Above & Beyond, she was on the front line working the front desk and working with children, which allowed her to hone her communication and customer service skills.
She'll continue in both roles until the end of her sophomore year. "I've never had a job where I could work with my graphic design skills before now," Carollo said. "I'm gathering a lot of experience and I really like it."
