Career Resource Assistant (CRA)
Career Planning & Resource Center

Hi! My name is Der Xiong and I’m a career assistant in the Career Planning and Resource Center. I help students schedule appointments to meet with career counselors about career exploration, resume, cover letters, job/internship search, interviews, etc. Additionally, I also help with various projects.
I’m also a student here at UWM, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Social Work. I’m currently in my junior year, expecting to graduate in May of 2023. At first, I didn’t know what I wanted to pursue in college, but I know that I love working with students and teens and giving a helping hand to others in need. When putting those two together, I realized that becoming a social worker is what I wanted to do. After graduating, I will attend grad school and earn a master’s degree in social work, to become a school social worker.
