Emma O'Neill-Myers (She/Her)
Associate Director of Employer & Community Connections
Emma is out on leave September 1, 2021 – March 1, 2022. Please connect with Jessie Smith during Emma’s absence: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m a proud 2005 alumnus of the University of Washington Geography department and now enjoy the opportunity to help support employers, and connect my fellow Huskies with meaningful job and internship opportunities at great organizations that span the Puget Sound, country and even the globe.
I oversee an Employer & Community Connections team that manages contact with thousands of employers annually – virtually through our Handshake board, on-site with employers through our Bridge Mentorship and Site Visit programs, or on-campus through our On-Campus Interview, InfoSession and Career Fair opportunities. How can we help you make your next great hire?
Jessie Smith (She/Her)
Assistant Director of Employer & Student Engagement
As a member of the Employer & Student Engagement team, I facilitate connections between students and employers though our Industry Mentorship Programs, company site visits, panels, and other programming. I help students explore the world of work, make connections, and understand how non-linear career pathways can develop.
I’m originally from Toronto, Canada, and made my way across the continent to attend Washington State University. While earning a degree in Psychology, I competed for Cougar swimming in breaststroke and sprint freestyle. Following graduation I worked in recruiting, before making the transition to higher education. Outside of work I enjoy camping, live music, and traveling.
Lindsay Smith (She/Her)
Handshake Experience Manager
I support students, alumni, and employer partners by managing the online recruitment database serving UW Seattle and UW Bothell: Handshake. Whether you’re a student looking for a relevant career opportunity, an employer looking to build brand awareness on campus, or a UW advisor looking to assist students in their career and internship goals, I can help!
I am a graduate of Gonzaga University’s School of Business but am excited to be a Husky as well. After a variety of professional experiences, I’m happy to be at UW in the Career and Internship Center. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, and traveling.
Daniel Herb (He/Him)
As the Internship Success Manager, I am excited to help students explore, find, and acquire high-quality internship experiences. I mainly work with UW staff, campus advisers, and employers to develop programs and processes that ensure students can access and thrive in these meaningful outside-the-classroom opportunities.
I grew up in San Jose, CA and received my Bachelor’s in Political Science and Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. My first job after college was in grassroots political activism in the Washington D.C. area. In that position, I worked with college student volunteers and found that higher education and student affairs was a great fit for my career interests. I came to UW for my Master’s degree in 2015, and prior to this role I have worked with student leadership programming and undergraduate research at the UW.
Outside of work, you can probably find me cooking up a new recipe, playing ultimate Frisbee, or hiking and camping.
Brittany Morgan (She/Her)
As the Employer Engagement & Communication Manager, I support the employer outreach and I work to develop relationships with hiring organizations, college career service departments, cross-university departments, and community partners. I also manage the Center’s career fairs and events to increase the number of internships, experiential learning and career opportunities for all University of Washington Students.
I started my career and discovered my passion for Student Life and Event Planning through hosting and planning events at the Student Center with my Alma Mater (Ohio University) and eventually serving in the same capacity for the Ohio Union at the Ohio State University. As a new Seattle transplant, I am in awe of the beauty of Washington and our campus and I love discovering all of Seattle’s parks with my family.
