Carpool from Kirkland to SPU

“I got two responses to my request for a graphic designer, and they were both high-quality people AND designers. I'm so happy Switchboard is here, otherwise I wouldn't have known where to even start finding someone for this project!”

“We got a couple of great candidates, one was a recent grad from SPU through a referral from a previous SPU grad applicant I kept in contact with. It pays to have friends who have your back, folks! It's also a huge bonus to keep in touch with businesses you interview with, even if you don't get the job. You may end up being a connection for a friend, or the company MIGHT even contact you again in the future with another opportunity, if you were gracious and respectful. Best of luck to all you job seekers! ”

“I found a wonderful couple to house and pet sit on Switchboard - I couldn't be more pleased! ”

Reuel Mateo was very helpful when my daughter was making travel plans to Brazil! ”

Reading Tutor for a College Student?

“After posting this message, I was contacted by Davinah Simmons, a Career Counselor at SPU.  She connected me with Jordan, a friend of hers who works with refugees and immigrants.  Jordan and I had a wonderful conversation through which I gained a lot of helpful insight and ideas.  I am really grateful for these connections and ideas!”

“had a great phone visit with Susan Marshall '07, another fantastic SPU alumna who has some great experience working with international students and in higher education. Perhaps her employment journey will bring her back to her alma mater some day. #OnceaFalconAlwaysaFalcon”
