BiographyName: Ivan Orozco

Internship Experience: Completed internships with the American Red Cross and Kmart. Works during the school year at Illinois Drug and Alcohol Evaluation Services as a Spanish Interpreter in addition to the CPA position. Marketing Intern at DISH Network for the summer of 2013.
Favorite Thing About Being a Career Peer Advisor: I enjoy working as a CPA because the career center staff is very supportive of new ideas. If I have an idea for career-related event, it is fairly easy to make it happen with their help. As I have been working here since 2011, students have returned and told me that my resume and cover letter advice helped them land an interview and eventually the internship. It's very rewarding!
