Engelking is responsible for planning, developing and administering career planning, cooperative education and career development programs for students at all four campuses.
Engelking comes to the position with more than 15 years of experience related to career and professional development services within higher education. Most recently, Engelking worked at the University of Central Florida as an Employer Relations Assistant Director.
Engelking, a native of Sanford, is familiar with the College. She worked as a placement specialist/career counselor at Seminole State from 2000-06 and also took dual enrollment courses at the College when she was a Seminole High School student.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with such a dedicated and professional staff as we enhance the career and professional development programs and services offered through the Career Development Center,” Engelking said. “Our team seeks to establish meaningful relationships with the community and facilitate ample opportunities for students to connect with mentors, employers, faculty and professionals as part of their career development process.”
