Jen Busick Stewart - Student Affairs Service Award 2011-12

Statement of Wonderfulness

In Celebration of

Jen Busick Stewart
Career Advisor & Outreach Coordinator


“Compassionate, Organized, Passionate, Committed, Go-Getter & Has a Heart of Gold” are what describes this “unsung heroine” who “always goes way above what is required and does it with ease and a smile!”  According to her colleagues…Jen is a “STAR” who genuinely CARES about each individual with whom she works. 

As Career Advisor and Outreach Coordinator, Jen is responsible for career advising and coaching students around finding jobs and internships; coordinating the Career Services website, social media including blogs, and online career services resources.  She also collaborates with marketing and outreach colleagues and manages outreach requests across campus. Jen was described as having made “significant contributions to the Career Center” and is “continually seeking ways to improve services to OSU students, alumni, and faculty/staff.”  Jen has also gotten involved in planning an Alumni Association/Career Services Mentoring program and the Student Affairs Communication group. Social Justice is important to Jen and she was described as having “true passion for helping students develop and is committed to all students having equal access to services, programs, and opportunities.”  

Jen is described as going out of her way to help others.  She provides an excellent example to our staff of a team leader, one who’s professional, pays exceptional attention to detail, is dependable, takes initiative, and always produces outstanding work.  Her example provides the perfect platform of what we can strive for, both professionally and personally.  Jen can often be heard exclaiming “I love my job” and colleagues have shared that hearing this is “infectious for our whole team.”

On a final note, Jen has recently left for maternity leave but she came into the office after her water already broke just to MAKE SURE she had everything prepared for us during her absence!  Jen’s dedication to her department and the campus as a whole is REMARKABLE and fully worthy of this year’s Student Services Award! 

Thank you Jen, for all that you do!
