Kris Scanlon, Career Development Specialist
A Lincoln native, Kris currently resides with her family in a small town about 30 minutes outside of Lincoln. During her undergrad time at UNL, Kris switched majors after her first semester as a freshman, ultimately finding her “home” in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications. She was a first gen student, had a double major in Journalism and Advertising, and worked two major-related internships simultaneously during her final two years as an undergrad. Both were on-campus internships, where Kris first discovered how much she enjoyed working in a higher ed environment and interacting with students, staff, and faculty.
After earning her Bachelor of Journalism, she worked in the marketing-communications field the first few years after graduation. About five years after graduating, she saw a job opening as an Internship Coordinator. As a student, Kris remembered how challenging it was to write a resume and seek out this assistance as a student and was drawn to wanting to help current students down this path and serve as a resource for them.
