  1. Hello, Heather,

    I am Preetam, a resident of Olathe here in Kansas city(Midwest). My deepest passion lies in being a mentor to college level graduates and undergraduates in terms of a student success advocate or an academic adviser. Putting back a smile on their faces means success to me in the truest sense of the word. I have recently applied for a similar position at JCCC here in Kansas City. I have networking on my mind as well and am going to attend a job club near my locality every thursday @ 10pm. Heather, I”d like to know about other avenues of getting that most coveted job. I would love to hear back from you in this regard.

    Thanking you in anticipation

    Sincerely
    Preetam Chidgupkar.
