Garden City, NY (I-Newswire) October 4, 2012 - Adelphi University is pleased to announce the appointment of Bernadine Waller, M.A. ’10 to Assistant Director of Experiential Learning in the Center for Career Development. Always a strong advocate for learning by doing, the Center for Career Development has high hopes that Waller will further nurture opportunities for students to gain experiential learning opportunities. “The hiring of Bernadine Waller into the newly created position of Assistant Director of Experiential Learning, reinforces the University's commitment of providing learning by doing opportunities for our students,” says Thomas Ward, Executive Director of the Career Development Center “By bridging what they are learning in the classroom with practical workplace experiences, Adelphi students are prepared to excel in a highly competitive global economy.”
Now more than ever, companies value experience in potential hires. While one may have the necessary knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom, real life on-the-job experience demonstrates significant value on a resume. “It increases a student’s likelihood of being hired,” explains Waller “Companies are looking for people who are well-rounded and globally minded rather than theoretically minded.” With diverse past experience in journalism, mental health counseling, marketing consultation and leadership training Bernadine Waller has immense wisdom and empathy to offer the students in her new role. “I love meeting people from all walks of life,” says Waller “I’m excited about coming to Adelphi in this new role. It affords me the opportunity to give students the same boost I was provided, which led to the successes in my career. My career mantra is to “Make It Happen.” Every student has an “it.” Once you’ve determined what that “it” is let’s partner to make ‘it’ happen!”
Bernadine Waller is an Adjunct Professor for Adelphi’s Gordon F. Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies. She has provided psychotherapy for students at Adelphi’s Garden City and Manhattan Campuses. Prior to coming to Adelphi she has worked as a journalist for an Emmy-award winning NBC News in Philadelphia and as a marketing consultant and leadership trainer for a Fortune 100 company. She has written for The Temple News, Associated Press, The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, and covered the Centennial Olympic Games for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She holds a B.A. in journalism from Temple University and an M.A. in mental health counseling from Adelphi University.
