Kelley Tarver   (BA 2009)- Director of Public Relations for HiHat Productions company

 “My experience with CSUB helped me to be aware that it is okay to not know exactly what direction professionally you want to go in in your field. I had professors who encouraged us to be open and try any and everything. They had taught us many aspects of the industry and practices that were transferable. This was very helpful in learning more about what makes me happy.”

Elizabeth Nelson   (BA 2008)- an Attorney at Law with Klein-DeNatale-Goldner and her areas of practice are personal injury, wrongful death, and business & civil litigation. 

 “CSUB provided me with a great educational foundation to succeed in law school in that it offered various courses related to the law, that allowed me to get a glimpse into what law school was going to be like. The classes were rigorous and challenging, which is good preparation for the law school environment.”

Melissa Rossitier    (BA 2005)- Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce: Marketing and Communications Manager 

 “Three weeks after graduation, I landed my first position at The Shafter Press as its editor. I was responsible for all content in that paper, and it was a great learning experience. I covered farmworker rights marches, rode in a police cruiser with the Shafter Police Chief to get an interview and flew in an old bomber at Minter Field. Because of my age, I almost didn't apply because I wasn't sure if the publisher would hire someone right out of college. I am so glad I took the risk. “
