Courtney Hanson

Position in the office - Student Manager/Programming

What are you doing now-a-days?

I currently live in Saint Louis Park with my college roommate and work as an Assistant Account Manager for Karwoski & Courage Public Relations in downtown Minneapolis. My primary responsibilities are to help a variety of Minnesota-based companies with their advertising and media relations efforts. In providing that support, I stay busy with a lot of writing, project management, event planning and creative design. Outside of work I stay busy planning my wedding next September, exploring the Twin Cities and staying in touch with my Bennies and Johnnies!

What does it mean for you to have worked in SALD-O-JEC?

SALD-O-JEC was a great place to learn the ins and outs of an organization. It taught me how to be a leader, how to be innovative and how to think on a higher more strategic level. SALD-O-JEC also played a major part in my professional development by giving me experiences and opportunities I wouldn't have had otherwise. These range from working with CSB/SJU administrators to attending leadership events to planning an organization's yearly goals. Working at SALD-O-JEC was also a great way to meet new people that I may not have otherwise. I was able to interact with different groups on campus, get to know Bennies and Johnnies who were in a different class year than I was, and find a few key mentors who have greatly impacted my life. SALD-O-JEC is a great place to work, develop and begin to frame your professional outlook.
