See how a Loyola degree helped these graduates stand out, succeed

Recent college graduates face fierce competition for jobs and positions in graduate and professional schools. Here are three members of Loyola’s Class of 2017 who definitely stand out from the crowd.

Melisa Blazevic

Major: Human resource management
New Job: Business delivery specialist at Aon Hewitt in Chicago

Talk a little about what you'll be doing.
I will be helping to deliver medical, 401(k), or pension benefits for clients. In addition, I will be developing relationships, tracking and improving upon operational metrics, engaging in client projects, and carrying out daily processes required to deliver services to clients.

How did Loyola prepare you for your job?
Loyola connected disciplines that I never thought could be connected in academics or the world of work. I feel that Loyola set me up for success not only through academics, but also contributed greatly to my personal development. I can proudly say, I would not be in the place that I am right now without my education from Loyola.

Any advice for seniors who will be graduating next year?
Enjoy every single minute of the time you have left because it goes by in the blink of an eye. Also, attend the Career Fair! You never know where your next big opportunity could come from. And always remember: You will forever be a Rambler.
