Howard "Nate" Rainey
Biology major with a concentration in Biomedical Sciences
As a student with hopes of working in emergency health care, the Center for Career
and Professional Development helped me obtain incredible experience as a medical scribe at
UPMC Susquehanna's Emergency Department by supplying me with the tools necessary to be
a successful applicant. The Center for Career and Professional Development gave me
invaluable advice that I believe has given me, as well as the rest of the students
at LHU, an advantage over other students at different universities by helping me build a
sound resume, obtain access to extraordinary opportunities, and by providing tips
on how to be successful in an interview.
Without the assistance of the Career Development Office, I wouldn't have been as knowledgeable
about applying to jobs or aware of the opportunities that are offered in the area
for students who aspire to work in health care. I now feel that I will have an advantage
when I apply to and interview at professional schools and future occupations because
of the advice The Center for Career and Professional Development has given me.
