When Ryan Stalgaitis was an undergraduate student at Rutgers University, he had no idea he would become a career counselor and receive the “Practitioner of the Year” award from the New Jersey Cooperative Education and Internship Association (NJCEIA).
“What I thought I was going to do was marketing and sales and I did,” Stalgaitis said. After graduating with a degree in communication and sociology, he worked in a marketing and sales role.
“I knew I wanted to work with people. I wanted to get more out of what I was doing when working with people,” he said.
