The semester leading up to graduation can be exciting and challenging.
For most students, the final semester is a culmination of finishing their degree, searching for a job and the excitement of starting a new life. For Marisa, it was a bit different. She had some personal events out of school that were jeopardizing the completion of her degree. She ended up missing school for weeks at a time during her last few semesters.
Josh met Marisa six months before graduation and saw her current struggle.
The career services advisor was worried that Marisa would drop out under the stress from her personal life. Josh knew he couldn’t let that happen. Marisa was so smart, with a 3.6 GPA, had an impressive resume and had worked so hard for her Criminal Justice degree. He knew he’d have to dedicate a little more time than usual to Marisa.
Josh was able to line up a lot of interviews for Marisa. She ended up receiving several offers but declined them because they either didn’t pay enough or the commute was too far. Marisa was beginning to become frustrated, but Josh wasn’t.
