Julie Phillips: Sullivan Louisville
Julie Phillips was selected as Alum of the Month from Sullivan University's Louisville campus. She graduated from the Paralegal Studies program in 2014. She chose the program because she enjoys researching topics, and law-related issues.
"My favorite thing about Sullivan would have to be the amazing Legal Studies Instructors, I also had the opportunity to work and gain experience in the library for a year," said Julie. "Sullivan helped prepare me for my career by educating me on new subjects while helping me polish the skills that I already possessed. This continued on through Career Services after I graduated. They provided me with mock interviews, a polished resume, and encouragement when I needed it. I am grateful for them!"
Julie is currently the Corporate Paralegal of the Louisville office at Ventas, Inc. "I was chosen for an interview through Career Services in November 2014 and hired the next month," she said. "I have been given an amazing employment opportunity by Ventas, Inc. and I plan on staying employed by them for the foreseeable future."
Her future plans are to return to school for her Bachelor's Degree within the next year. She is considering going for her Bachelor of Science in Paralegal Studies or her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
Julie's advice to students is: "Utilize every avenue you have available to you while trying to find a job after you graduate, career services, employment sites, staffing agencies, etc. Also, search and apply for as many scholarships as you can while you're in school."
