Career Advisor

I truly enjoy assisting job seekers with their career goals and feel very grateful to have been part of the journey for 100’s of job seekers. Providing leadership to the Career Services team is inspiring and serving customers – students, alumni and the general community – in an equitable manner is my passion. 

​There is a big difference between a job and a career. Career planning starts with a desire to move forward. My goal is to help individuals define their strengths and build on those strengths.

As a recent graduate of the Administrative Professional program here at NWTC, and with my experience working with community members in need, I am able to provide each guest with proficient and effective tools to assist during each step of their career journey.

Career/ Academic Advisor - IT
 
As the newest Career Advisor, I am delighted to be part of the great Career Services team at NWTC! I am excited to assist students and community members with all facets of their educational and career planning as well as preparing for co-op, internship and the job search process.  I recently relocated to the area and bring over 19 years of professional experience from UW-Madison providing educational, academic and career advising.  In my role I worked closely with nontraditional and underrepresented students, connecting them with resources and helping them design a plan to pursue their educational and career endeavors.  My role involved community outreach and was directly tied to recruitment and retention of nontraditional, first-generation college students as well as international students. I am a native of Puerto Rico and speak Spanish fluently.  So whether you need career direction, are curious about the Career Academy or need assistance with your resume, finding an internship or conducting a job search, I’d be happy to help you!

As you can see, Txujtsheeb is my first name.  Give the pronunciation a shot…  Everyone calls me Simeon.  I have worked and assisted with many departments at NWTC.  Through my experiences here at NWTC, I enjoy working with the students and community members whether it is getting started on assessments or referring them to the correct NWTC Services or advising and prepping them on their career goals.  Your success is very important to all of us here at NWTC.

Mary Nemec
(920) 498-6250 ​
Career Services Assistant
My primary role in Career Services is to assist Machine Tool-CNC Technician students through our Career Academy program. Through Career Academy, we help students build their resume and their business network. We also help students work with career mentors in their field, provide them with real life work experience, and enhance their employability skills. My professional background includes graduate internships at St. Norbert College and Northeast Wisconsin Technical College where I worked with Student Involvement and Academic Advising. I also have 4 years of high demand staffing, recruiting, connecting prospects to employers, resume and cover letter writing, and interviewing experience. I am fully committed to helping students succeed in higher education. As a Career Advisor, I will devote my time and efforts in helping our students obtain employment in their desired fields.
Being on my own distinctive academic/career path has given me a unique perspective when assisting students, alumni and community members. As part of my role in Career Services, I provide our guests with guidance in the creation of cover letters and resumes while also assisting them in deciding on and fulfilling their career goals. I like knowing that I’ve made a difference and that they feel more prepared for what lies ahead when they leave Career Services
