Greetings from a new blogger!

Apr 14, 2009 in Eye on Edu | 0 comments

I’d like to introduce myself as one of the newest bloggers to our Education Community site! My name is Karen Gonzalez and I began working for CPP in November of 2007 as the Marketing Coordinator. I have been dedicated to serving the needs of our customers who work in the fields of Education and Career Counseling, and I am also the editor of our quarterly CPP Career Insider.

Had this been the case in my experience, I would have been much more confident in the major that I chose. It was much more stressful than it needed to be with all the endless career choices I was presented with.
