I have been working at Astera CU for the past two months as the marketing assistant. I feel so grateful to be working in communications, which is where I always wanted to be. I graduated May 6th from MSU, and began work just a week later. My day usually consists of monitoring our social media and putting together either a press release or a letter to our members. I also get to do a lot of traveling around to our branches. The lucky thing about my position is getting to attend so many community events. I have met some great people in the Greater Lansing Area and am absolutely loving the start of my career.
During my time as a student I fell in love with Lansing Area, every internship opportunity brought me to places so unique and interesting. The people here have been so warm and welcoming, I could not ask for a nicer place to be.
I hope that my experience can be an inspiration to students that are considering jobs in the Lansing Area after graduation. There are jobs in Lansing, and we need young, educated people to fill them.
