Stefanie Lechner, a student of the College of Public Health's Therapeutic Recreation program was recently quoted in the headline story of the Philadelphia Inquirer. When asked about the economy and the current unemployment rate Lechner was quoted stating, "It doesn't frighten me". Of her three best friends, two have jobs in their fields and the third will be attending graduate school after graduation. Lechner will be graduating in less than two weeks and will begin an unpaid internship. Lechner believes this career move will lead to fulltime employment in the same organization by the end of the year.
Congrats, Stefanie and best of luck with your future endeavors!
