Hello, my name is Allison Dobson and I am an undergraduate student and senior at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. At Longwood, I am working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in Organizational Communications and Public Relations as well as two minors in Leadership Studies and Spanish. While at Longwood I have multiple leadership experiences in both my academic and campus involvements as well as the opportunity to study abroad, all of which have aided in my personal and professional growth. I am currently preparing for entrance into the job market after my expected graduation in May of 2011 at which point I will pursue an entry level position in Public Relations and/or Human Resources.
As a senior in her final semester of her undergraduate career I have had so many friends, family members and mentors ask what it is I want to do with my life after graduation. I reply with the only true and valid response I can, and that is "find happiness and enjoyment in my work". I have had so many wonderful opportunities at Longwood University as a Communications Studies student and owe an incredible amount of my success to the support system that I have here in my professors, advisors, classmates and Lancers of all stages of their tenure at Longwood University. I know that in May, I will leave the campus I know as home fully prepared and qualified to enter the job market and I cannot wait for the journey to begin.
