It is my goal to help you build confidence in your career skills.Jason Cirilo – Senior Career Development Specialist
Acting on stage, spinning tunes as a radio DJ, and entertaining audiences with magic tricks…
These were the big adventures that changed my life, built my self-confidence, and laid the unique foundation for my interest in working with students.
From that odd mix of experiences, I learned important professional lessons that helped me succeed in the corporate world. Recruiting is where I eventually landed, and that led to working with students from different universities around the United States.
I was the guy that shook your hand at job fairs, interviewed you over the phone, and signed your offer letter. Additionally, I was creating and delivering campus workshops covering resumes, interviewing, networking strategies, self-branding, office etiquette, and many other career related topics. After some deep soul searching, I felt it was time to take my passion into the classroom permanently.
Each day at The University of Texas at Dallas, I help students navigate the challenges of developing memorable professional skills, and finding that next big opportunity. My lessons are drawn from my corporate experiences, as well as those days of being on stage, behind the mic, and making things disappear.
As a coach, mentor, and friend – it is my goal to help you build confidence in your career skills. In the end, I’m just grateful to be a small part of your big adventure.
I felt compelled to share my story with others, so I published a book in 2017 which details my awkward, yet satisfying journey. You can find it here on Amazon Kindle.
