Michelle Meers joined Career Services in September 2011. She has fifteen years of clinical experience with a diverse population of clients. She has worked with juvenile offenders and their families for most of her career and taught at Blinn College for several years. She is excited about working with college students as they prepare to enter the workplace. Michelle’s approach is identifying students’ strengths and encouraging students to pursue a field of study where their strengths and interests will be maximized. She provides career counseling, interprets career assessments, conducts mock interviews, presents a wide range of career-related topics to groups/classes and critiques resumes. She is also part of the social media team for Career Services.
Michelle is also a part-time instructor for the SHSU First Year Experience program and teaches the career exploration cohort for Introduction to University Studies. She incorporates career resources and experiential learning into the life-skills curriculum as a way to help freshmen students find their career paths and recognize the importance of intentionality.
