Andre Luck, hidden away in the student support offices before financial aid, patiently waits for students to ask about what he does best, advising in Career Services. Luck, a knowledgeable man with a passion in what he does, explains what Career Services offers to PVCC students not just while they are students here but also as contributing members of society after graduation.

As Luck describes, “Career Services has more than one purpose here on campus,” a pamphlet is handed to that perspective student explaining all that is available to PVCC students upon admission. Luck states that he “tries to connect the incoming student with employers for internships and connect that same student with employers for prospective long term careers after graduation.”

Luck says, “I help staff of outside and internal departments post their work study openings online and within PVCC on one of the many bulletin boards around campus.”

Career Services also offer resume writing workshops and one-on-one resume editing. Luck helps the students prepare these, so when they attend a job fair or interview not only do they have a physical copy but also an electronic copy on hand to present to employers actively searching.

“The student must think like the employer that they are seeking employment from by wording their resume to translate the student’s skills into comprehensible terms friendly for the employer to understand, especially if the student is going from one industry to another,” says Luck.

Gigi Davis is now on staff with Luck at the Career Services Office, as of Oct. 25. Davis is focusing on internship and job coordination. She is excited to be coming aboard with a thriving program.
