Career Engagement Specialist
My name is Jaityn (jay ten) Gomez and I am the Career Engagement Specialist with Career Services. In my position, I assist our undergrads by preparing them for their next phase whether it be entering the workforce or pursuing graduate school. I help with resume reviews, cover letter reviews, mock interviews, give classroom presentations and much more with the help of our student Career Coaches.
I graduated from Fort Lewis in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in English Communications and a minor in Sociology. As a first-generation student, I was a member of TRIO and worked with our campus radio station, KDUR. After graduation, I worked in sales for a local radio station before transitioning back to FLC to work in Skyhawk Station as an Advisor. I advised for a year before finding my new role with Career Services. I loved my time as a student at FLC and I am thankful to be back here serving the next wave of FLC graduates.
Outside of work, you can usually find me cooking something delicious and binging my latest obsession on Netflix or Hulu with my fur babies. I also enjoy hiking, reading, true crime podcasts and yoga.
