Meet the Ecampus Student Success team
Career counselor and instructor Kyle Cassady
Working with distance students has been a passion of mine and goes waaaaaay back to 2006 when I taught OSU’s Career Decision Making course online for the first time. I admit I was skeptical at first about how to engage students in an online format, but I was pleasantly surprised by how active, interested and connected online learners could be – often more so than their peers on campus.
It was love at first “sight,” and I’ve been extremely lucky to continue to teach online ever since.
I also provide career counseling to Ecampus students, and together we cover a full array of issues: diving deeply into self-reflection and career assessment, actively exploring career ideas, setting goals to move forward in professional development, seeking internships and other experiential learning opportunities, connecting with professionals and competently conducting internship and job searches.
We live in an interesting time, so working with Ecampus programs and OSU Career Services to connect students and employers via technology is another fun role for me.
I moved from Austin, Texas, 11 years ago when my husband and I fell in love with Corvallis. I love to listen to live music, travel anywhere, fly-fish meandering rivers and collect heart-shaped rocks. I’m pretty committed to my Longhorns, but I have grown to love and cheer on another “orange” team – Go Beavs!
