The Office of Career Services has a new director, Jennifer Johnson.
A YSU graduate twice, having earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration here, Johnson is returning to her native Mahoning Valley.
“This is a coming home for me,” she said. “I have a strong affinity for YSU and this area.”
Johnson began her career at Aqua Ohio, a private local water utility company, before moving to several other supervisory positions, including the director of Human Resources at a Columbus law firm. In 2010, she returned to the area and to Aqua Ohio, where she was in charge of all customer field service activities.
Johnson said the Office of Career Services works hard to successfully move students from college into their desired careers. “Our office helps students prepare for one of the most important transitions of their life,” said Johnson. “I look forward to exploring the inherent synergies that exist on campus for the benefit of all students.”
