What does it mean to BE YOUR OWN HERO?

Cue the slow piano. Bring up the lights. Lift the curtain. Because just like Jay Z in his timeless hit single, Public Service Announcement, we here at Be Your Own Hero would also like to re-introduce ourselves! As you can see, we have given our website a major overhaul and it’s all to make it a more enjoyable experience for everyone that is also looking to don a new cape and re-introduce themselves to the world. Whether you’re here as a hero doing a bit of recon on the resources we offer, a parent looking to see what we can offer your student, or even an employer hoping to get involved with Be Your Own Hero, you will find our new website extremely helpful and easy to navigate. There’s something for everyone here, so happy hunting! We look forward to seeing what cape you choose!

I would not have the full time position as an Applications Engineer with the company I work for without Jean and the Adopt a Grad program. Jean gave me the opportunity to submit my resume to one of her many contacts, but most of all she gave me the tools necessary to get the interview, perform well during the interview, and most importantly receive an offer for the internship. I was hired for the internship in January going into my last semester of college, and I was offered a full time position before I graduated.”
