Who Your Donation Is Helping

Here are just a few examples of students who have benefited from the Magner Career Center. It is through generous donations that we are able to continue doing this work.

“The center gave me hope during a time where many were hopeless. During the recession it was extremely difficult to find a job, but the center provided great insight into available fields and avenues of pursuing careers in a field if my choice.”—Shanna Midleton ’09 is deputy assistant director for education, New York City Office of Management and Budget

“The Magner Center played an instrumental role in launching my career in finance. The center provided me with all the tools and support after graduation to launch my career (not just a job), all the way from résumé reviews and practicing interviewing skills to leveraging strong relationships with Brooklyn College professors and alumni who are already established in their industries and can assist recent graduates and students in getting their foot in the door.”—Victor Thkifati ’10, Assistant Vice President, Deutsche Bank

“The Internship Stipend Award provided by the Magner Center allowed me to spend a summer in Jordan, where I interned at an English-language newspaper and studied Arabic. I wrote a lot of interesting stories for the newspaper and met many fantastic people. One of my stories even ended up on the front page! The stipend made that trip possible, and I would love to pay it forward any way that I can.”—Alex Ellefson ’14, Intern, The Indypendent

“The Magner Center really opened doors for me in getting experience in the professional world. From sitting down with multiple career counselors to résumé reviews, company visits, and internship experience, I gained a lot of insight on the industry and a new direction I would like to pursue within it where I would best fit.”—Tyler ’15, Brooklyn College Student

“It is through the efforts of receiving a $3,000 stipend from the Magner Center that I was able to take a nonpaid internship at New York City Council in the Speaker’s Office. From my internship, I received a part-time position as a legislative aide, and now I have a full-time position as a community liaison for Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.”—Perri Litton ’12, Community Liaison, New York City Council

“The Magner Center is a resource: valuable, relevant, and effective. Not only do my students appreciate the efforts of the entire staff, but as a Brooklyn College staff member and alumna, I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of various events and workshops.”—Jessica Doeman ’07, CSTEP Program Coordinator, Research Foundation, Brooklyn College
