Welcome Wagon

"Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing."
Theodore Roosevelt

It has been just over 2 weeks since I started my new job.  Everyone has been very friendly and welcoming.  There is much to be done, but I am very motivated to GET TO WORK.  To give you an idea of the culture on the campus, here is the welcome email from my new boss...

Dear Colleagues,

Please join me in welcoming Adam DeRosa as the new Coordinator of the Career Center here at South.  Adam started July 1st and replaces Kathleen Rhoad who retired last year.  Mr. DeRosa’s primary focus will be to work  closely with the Associate Deans and Program Managers, particularly in the Career and Technical programs, to equip our graduating students with the requisite skills to successfully apply, interview and secure employment.  Additionally, he will develop partnerships with local, national businesses and Workforce One to provide internship opportunities and employment for students earning career and technical degrees.  Mr. DeRosa will also work closely with the Student Affairs Leadership Team to develop a process that provides career assessment and career information to our students, thereby ensuring that all students have ‘defined themselves’ so they can ‘Finish What They Start’. 

Mr. DeRosa has a Master of Science in Higher Education from The Florida State University and brings lots of experience from both K-12 and higher education.  His most recent experience includes serving as the Director of Student Services and Director of New Student Orientation at Everglades University and Florida Atlantic University respectively.  He has also taught the College Success Skills course both at the North Campus of Broward College and Florida Atlantic University.  

Mr. DeRosa is located in the Career Center, building 68, room 100 and his extension is 8865.  Please stop by and give him a warm South Campus welcome.

I am excited about the opportunity I have to make a difference on this campus.  Thanks to my family and friends for supporting me through this transition.
