About Najet
"I am thrilled to join Berkeley Career Engagement and to work with the College of Chemistry. Over the past ten years, my experience included working with students, recent graduates, and professionals from diverse backgrounds to evaluate transferable skills, write resumes and cover letters, recommend job search strategies, and prepare for interviews. Now, I am eager to help students identify goals, consider options after graduation, and guide them through the internship or job search process. I graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences, and my professional career has spanned working in multiple industries. I love spending time with my husband and children, and I enjoy reading, hiking, and cooking.

Please feel free to book a time to meet with me on Handshake for virtual and in-person appointments. And be sure to connect with me on my LinkedIn page."
