Name: Shelley Berken
Position: C&I Instructor
Employer: College of Education and Human Development, University of Minnesota

Please describe your past experience working in the schools.
For 26 years I have taught or been a public school administrator in Elementary or Middle Schools in both St. Paul and Minneapolis. The last 12 of those years were spent as a school administrator in the Minneapolis Public Schools. I began my career as an Elementary Special Education teacher, then moved to teaching a variety of grades as a regular education teacher. Some of my positions included Title One Teacher, Program Resource Teacher and Behavior Resource Teacher. I have had the privilege of being part of starting two new schools in the Minneapolis Public Schools; one a Middle School, the other an Elementary Math, Science, Technology Elementary School. As you can see, it's important to be flexible and creative in the education profession.

In this competitive teacher job market, how can applicants stand out during the application and interview process?

Given our competitive job market, as a recent education graduate, you want to show that you have a variety of experiences such as volunteering in schools and other youth-serving agencies. Knowledge of the community and school at which you are applying is an advantage because it shows that you have taken the initiative to learn about the program. It is important to show that you are able to discuss assessment data and how you would address the academic needs of the school.

During the interview, present yourself professionally in the way you dress as well as in your interpersonal manner. The old saying is true; first impressions do matter. Bring enough resumes for everyone who might be at the interview. Create a professional portfolio of your education and experience to share with the interview committee. Make eye-contact with each person during your interview, speak clearly and with confidence. If you donʼt know the answer, say so and add that you would be interested in learning more about the topic. Whenever possible, relate your answers to your own experience.

How do you recommend our students speak about having their masters degree, or credits toward their masters degree, during their job search?
If you have an advanced degree, donʼt try to hide it. Your education illustrates your dedication to your profession, represents you as a life-long learner and is an example to which your students can aspire. During the interview, you can discuss your motivation to pursue advanced degrees and the advantages you see to having them.

What qualities do employers appreciate most in new teachers?
Drive, enthusiasm, eagerness to learn, self-reflection along with the ability to collaborate are qualities that impress employers. Education is a profession that demands ongoing professional development and energy. Your students and their families will demand and deserve only the highest quality of performance from you.

Please share any advice you have for students entering the teaching profession.
As you know, education is the most important profession you can choose because you are preparing future generations to lead and move our country and the world forward. Teaching is hard work, exhausting and exhilarating beyond words.

John Thomason_1.jpg
John Thomason
Senior | Business and Marketing Education
ShopNBC | Customer Relationship Marketing and Online Programming Intern


How did you learn about your internship position?
The University of Minnesota's Job and Internship Fair.


What are your key responsibilities?
Basically I help the Marketing and Programming departments with whatever tasks they have to do. Primarily I have been doing research. Most of the areas I have been researching I am familiar with due to my classes here at the U.


What steps did you take in the application process?
After joining numerous internship-search websites and attending many career fairs, I put together a list of potential positions I was interested with. For most of these positions I was able to meet recruiters and talk to them about the position and the company offering it. From there I applied for 15 to 20 internships and made sure to send thank you emails to the recruiters I met. This is when I started using Career services to have them check over my resume as I searching.

Once I applied to all my target internships, I was forced to wait for responses back from my potential employers. However during this time I was constantly looking for new opportunities at act as back-ups in case these positions didn't work out. Eventually towards Spring Break I heard back from employers and started setting up interviews with them during Spring Break. To practice for these interviews, I went to Career Services for mock interviews.

During Spring Break I had an interview each day, Monday through Thursday, three of which were on site and one was a phone interview. They all went well and I made sure to said a thank-you email to each person I met. From that point on I waited for responses back and continued searching for new opportunities. Then one day I heard back from ShopNBC to do a second interview with them, which I did on the phone. I talked with three of their top management in separate interviews and all of them went well. Finally, hours after my third interview, I got a call from ShopNBC's Human Resources department saying I had gotten the position! I was very excited that day.


How did you help yourself stand out from all the other applicants?
The first thing I did was adhere to a strict image of professionalism. Before every interview I made sure I dressed up in a suit and tie and that I looked good. I also made sure to arrive on time to any meeting I had and that I had everything I needed with me. I brought a briefcase with me at all times that had my resume and other important papers and items in it. I also used Fed-Ex to make my my own business cards that I gave to every single living thing I met, saw, or even glanced at. Having such cards is important as it gets your name out there as well as they make you look professional. Finally, I had Career Services look at resume so that it looked professionally up to date and organized.

The second thing I did was I made sure employers knew I was enthusiastic about the position I was applying for. This wasn't difficult for me as the positions I was applying for were ones I had researched and wanted because they looked like so much fun. Employers really like seeing excited applicants and they remember those types of people. Smiling and asking lots of questions goes a long way.


What did you find to be the most helpful during your internship search process?
Having access to all the different resources to that I needed to succeed was really helpful. This includes Career Services, who helped me prepare for my interviews, looked over my resume, and provided me with dates and information on upcoming career fairs.

My parents were also a great deal of help. They often would email me links to internships that they thought would interest me. They even helped update my wardrobe for my interviews! My Dad gave me a DVD called "Getting that Job" by a college education group called Standard Deviants. I recommend everyone see this video as it gives very important tips to secure a job and it's presented in a humorous way. Most importantly, my parents gave me advice and encouragement during my job search, which really helped me.

The final resource I found helpful was the internet. As well as provide me information of the different companies I was applying to, I found many websites and articles that gave me excellent advice on how to do a job search, what to look for, and of course find internships.


What have you learned this far from your internship experience that you have found to be the most valuable for your professional development?
Being prepared is crucial. Having a plan to do something as well as the knowledge and skills to support that plan is vital in any professional setting.


Do you have any tips to share with others about your experience?

1. Apply for multiple positions. A bare minimum number is 15 or so. The more the better. It will take a lot of time to fill them out but you need to do it.

2. Research! Not only should you look at the companies you are applying to but also look at websites and articles that deal with job searching.

3. Use the Career Services here on campus. they are free, here to help you, and do a great job. Did I mention they were free?

4. Everything about you should be professional. This includes not only your attire but also your resume, other paperwork, business cards, brief case, attitude, walk, etc.

5. Go to the University of Minnesota Job and Internship Fair. It's free and they even drive you there.

6. Respond with a thank you note to each person you meet/interview with.

7. Be on time. Arrive within 10 minutes of any meetings/interviews you have. If you don't know where you are supposed to go, drive there beforehand.

8. Don't be cheap. Spend the money to make businesses cards, have paper for your resumes, attend career fairs, and upgrade your wardrobe. It is worth it.

9. Have a plan.

10. Don't worry. You will find a job.



At the University of Minnesota and in CEHD we feel every student has what they need to be successful. We believe in taking a strengths based approach and work with students to learn to use their talents so they can be developed into strengths.


What are your top 5 talent themes?
My top 5 talent themes are Positivity, Empathy, Communication, Adaptability, and Woo!

In what ways do you use your talents each day?

Positivity is a talent that I use every day. I find that if you are happy and excited to be doing whatever it may be that you are doing, then other people around you are happier and more excited too. I like being positive because it makes the overall experience more fun and enjoyable regardless of what you are doing.


Empathy is my talent to connect and relate to others. I often think of how other people will be affected by things I see on the news or read in the Daily. It can be hard to put yourself it someone else's shoes and feel the pain they are going through but it is amazing to share someone else's joy and triumph. Empathy to me is connecting with people on a deeper more emotional level.

Communication is something that I do 24/7. I am always thinking of different ideas and talking them out with my friends. Being a good communicator makes it easier for me to clearly express my thoughts and feelings as well as take constructive criticism. Communication is the corner stone to developing any relationship.

Adaptability is a talent that I take to heart. I pride myself on being quick on my feet and not getting stuck in a routine. I very much live in the moment and take life as it comes.


Woo! Is obviously the best talent theme, or at least the most fun to say. Winning others over is something that I love to do. I love meeting new people, connecting with them, and turning them into friends. It is fun and it's a great way to get out of my comfort zone. I pride myself on being able to get along with anyone.


How have you sought to develop your talent themes?
I have developed my talent themes by trying to consciously acknowledge when I use them. Before the Strengths Finder Assessment I already knew that I was good at talking to people. But after I know realize that this is because of my two talent themes Communication and Woo. By recognizing when I use my talent themes I can work on improving them.


Which talent themes fit you best and why?

I think the talent theme that fits me best is Adaptability. I live day by day and don't worry too much about the future. I try to take in life right now and do the best I can every day. I love trying new things and going on adventures. I am always ready to try a new restaurant or meet new people. Adaptability to me means being able to do the best you can in the moment and never saying no to something new and exciting.

In return, we gain access to the finest, most creative and energetic students in the world. We believe our interns hold the key to our success and the success of our partnered restaurants.

3. Member Restaurants - These are our customers, small business owners, who by their very presence on campus are committing to support the U of M, its faculty, and of course, its students.
