Marywood's Career Development Center (formerly known as Career Services) is undergoing changes to better serve Marywood students AND alumni. Learn more about how Marywood's Career Development Center and Career Engagement Specialist Christina Brundage, M.S., now in charge of the center.
Christina is a 2015 graduate of Marywood University’s Higher Education Administration Program and is currently pursuing her doctorate at Marywood in Human Development. She has been with the university for the past six years. In November, she took on the role as the Career Engagement Specialist in charge of the Career Development Center.
Christina spent several years of her professional life focused on educational technology. Following her graduate degree, she enjoyed a transition to working with students in advising and career development in Marywood’s Office of Student Success. She is eager to work with the university’s students and alumni and has already begun integrating new technology and revamping the services the department provides - including offering evening workshops on various topics that will help alumni in their own professional development. Please reach out to Christina with any questions you may have!
