I wanted to visualize data and use Excel better, and I needed to update my resume.
With the help from people at the Library, I’ve found the career that brings me joy and will help me make the biggest impact on my community. I gained a raise at my previous position and then found a home at my current job. I’m currently the Relationship and Systems Coordinator at Sophia Academy, where I use the Excel and data viz tools learned to maintain our fundraising database, build tracking systems for campaigns, help explain Sophia’s impact, learn donor interests, and accurately report development funds.
Don, Chris and the data/comp science language team are so kind and understanding. They’re able to teach in a way that allows anyone to understand and the classes are fun. Also, the valuable help with resume and career services I received was so insightful and both were instrumental in me finding my current position.
I have a deep appreciation for PPL and the role it took in my professional advancement. I would not be where I am without the Library and everyone there. And, my journey isn’t ending. I just got accepted into the Providence College Masters in Business Analytics program!!!
