I was so stressed because I couldn’t decide between teaching and nursing. CHARLIE: But those doubts are common. So many students come in with competing passions. That’s why we have the freshman immersion class. JAMIE: I’m so glad you suggested that. Getting to actually experience what it’s like to be a teacher was amazing. After that, it was a no-brainer. Learn more about the undergraduate experience at CHARLIE: Well, that’s the cool thing about it. You get to figure things out early on. And yeah, you sure seem a lot less stressed. JAMIE: Here’s to pep talks and lattes. Ten applicants bring a résumé to an interview. One also brings a portfolio. Who gets the job? You. At NSU, you’ll have the opportunity to create a marketable portfolio based on real work experience and course projects that show off your credentials—and your character. Combined with the coaching from your professors and career adviser, your portfolio becomes a winning asset for job interviews— evidence of your knowledge, skills, and qualifications. It turns your academic achievements into your professional success. That’s the NSU edge.
