Susan Schell has been named the new director of the Career Management Center for the College of Business. Schell is a familiar face throughout the College of Business. She has been a part of the college community since 2006, during which time she has taught everyone from undergraduates to MBA students.

Wide-ranging experience

Sue Schell brings a wealth of experience to the position as well as knowledge of the College and the Colorado job market. She plans to work with the business community to link the students to internships, jobs, and networks while adding value to the businesses. She also has aggressive plans to grow the department and enhance the student experience. As part of this plan, Schell would like to design a designated area within the Center for students to work on their resumes, portfolios, and job searches with access to robust data bases and subscriptions.

Also on the agenda is creating resources such as video training, e-books, and additional networking events. Schell is pleased to be working with the existing staff of the Center which has provided great services in the past and she hopes to help them push their goals forward.

"Together we are a strong team with creative minds and exhaustive plans to be a world-class organization," she said.

In 2009, Schell received the “Woman of Influence in Business” award in northern Colorado. She is best known for her work in cultural engineering. Schell also has been a frequent public speaker and has been featured on many television programs, conference rosters, training videos and video documentaries. More than 120 of her management articles were published in Business World Magazine over a 12-year period.
