Shining Their Light

Michael O'Reilly

Digital Leadership Development Program Associate, Raytheon

The curriculum and professors at Assumption have helped me grow as a versatile young professional.

Not only have I gained the technical knowledge needed in the field, I also received professional guidance from Professor Albert and the rest of the department’s faculty. As a result, I participated in an internship and was offered a full-time job before graduating.

Vocational Counselor, The New England Center for Children

My internship at The New England Center for Children was a wonderful experience.

I gained knowledge in specific areas of applied behavior analysis (ABA) throughout my internship. I learned how to efficiently run task analysis as well as preference assessments with students. I also enjoyed learning about the clinical aspect of ABA.

My success is a result of the faculty’s extensive knowledge and the Career and Internship Fair.

Assumption prepared me by guiding me through the job search process and helping with my resume, cover letters, and any other questions I had. Take advantage of all the opportunities that Assumption provides!

My professors at Assumption challenged me to think critically to solve problems.

After working on various group projects, I learned the importance of listening and working as a team. Working with people has always been a passion of mine and a big part of my job at Amazon is motivating, mentoring and coaching my team. I feel well prepared for my career.

Assumption exposed me to new and exciting opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible elsewhere.

I wanted to learn what it would be like to work in journalism, a field I’m very passionate about, and Assumption afforded me this opportunity. Professor O'Hara was a huge influence in my decisions. She believed in me and guided me towards my professional and personal goals.
Nicole Gomez

Assumption’s cybersecurity program has given me the skills and knowledge necessary for success.

Assumption’s cybersecurity program has definitely prepared me for success and helped me grow in my career path. I’ve learned so much from my professors and received a lot of support along the way. It’s an honor to be one of the first to graduate from the program.

Assumption offers all the resources to make one’s dreams become reality.

Students reach their highest potential here. I want to build and improve healthcare systems in developing countries, so I was able to complete my internship in my home country, Ghana, where l left six years ago. This is undoubtedly a dream I have always hoped for.
