Diane Anderson goes above and beyond for students.
As Assistant Director of Career Services, Diane frequently works one-on-one with students to meet their needs and best prepare them for their future. She also works with businesses to meet their needs and find new opportunities for her students.
This month, Diane is being recognized for her dedication, loyalty, and the “helping hand” award.
“Diane is very dedicated and loyal to the Thomas students. I often see her here early and who knows what time she actually arrived. Her helping hand and kind personality truly is an asset in helping students find jobs,” said one colleague.
Diane has worked at Thomas College for six years.
“Plain and simple, Diane Anderson constantly goes the extra mile for our students – be it one-on-one consultations, help in preparing for interviews, or matching up the needs of employers with individual students abilities and desires in order to provide the best fit for both,” said a staff member. “Her tireless work in organizing the multitude of career fairs provides our students with ample opportunities to explore job markets.”
Thomas College’s professors also notice how crucial Diane is to their students’ success: “Diane – Thank you for following up with [student]. Thanks also for your exceptional support, once again this semester, to my entire class. Each group benefits notably from your in-class presentations and follow-up, plus from their individual interviews. Student feedback is always positive and they feel comfortable with your continued commitment to help them go forward. I really appreciate all that you do for this class.”
Diane is also involved with committee and board work for the Maine Career Development Association, Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce and American Association of University Women (AAUW), which “further proves her commitment to the career industry. Her loyalty to the college and service to the community is second to none.”
“Diane works tirelessly to meet the needs of students all while holding herself to the highest ethical standards,” said another colleague.
