“David Reast and the Schreiner Career Development Office have been a great resource during my education process at Schreiner University. With the help of Mr. Reast, I was able to earn a grant to travel to the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings and Job Fair which proved to be a great networking opportunity and helped me to secure a job after graduation. I went on this trip twice; in my junior and senior years. He was able to offer me good advice on the process of networking and job interviews and helped me set goals for myself to get the most out of the experience. With the experience gained from my first trip, I was better prepared for my next trip and secured a job with Perfect Game after I graduate. Mr. Reast always showed genuine interest in what I was doing and genuinely cares about students and wants them to be successful. I am very appreciative of his continued work in the Schreiner University Career Development Office, because without their continued support none of this would have been possible.” -Eric D.
