Connect with The Career Center: Nalani Goonetilleke

1. What is your role at the Career Center?
I am the External Relations Intern here at the Career Center. The internship consists of working with employers in coordination of different activities and events involving students, such as the Career Fairs, PRIDE Shadowing, as well as a plethora of services that the Career Center offers.

2. What did you study in school OR what was your favorite class when you were in school?
I am currently a graduate student in the Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies program here at Hofstra. I will be entering into my second semester in the program. For my undergraduate studies, I received a BA in Psychology from St. John's University.

3. Where is your favorite spot on campus?
My favorite spot on campus is the lawn in front of Adam's Playhouse. It is very serene and you can often catch students playing or lounging around in that area.

4. What is your favorite season and why?
Winter is my favorite season because I enjoy all the festivities and joy that the holidays bring. I also look forward to the fashion!

5. What message do you have for the incoming class of 2019/returning Hofstra students as they begin their new school year?
For incoming students, as well as returning students, I feel that it is important to keep in mind that pursuing your degree is not limited to going to your classes, doing your required assignments, and passing. This University offers so much to their students and it would be great to take advantage of all the activities that are presented. Engage yourself in something that you enjoy, make connection with others, and expand your learning opportunities.
