Director of Internships & Employer Services
Every year, SuccessWorks has had the irreplaceable support of donors and alumni. There’s a reason why no other institution in the Big Ten is doing what the College of Letters & Science has done with SuccessWorks: nobody can match the commitment of the Badger community and their willingness to step up in support of our students.
Put simply, “SuccessWorks is kind of the glue between the students and our organization,” according to Diana Pastrana. “SuccessWorks is a trusted resource, both for students and for Aldevron. It’s nice to have that so we can meet and engage students, keep them in Wisconsin after graduation, and fill our positions with talented, smart students and alumni.”
