Pam Ferman will become director of the Career and Professional Readiness Center on Wednesday, Aug. 1.
Connie Whitcomb, who has been director of St. Bonaventure’s career center (now CPRC) for 23 years, is stepping down but not stepping away. She will stay on board with CPRC part time as a career consultant.
“I have been considering retirement for the last few years. The opportunity to assume this part-time role offers me the best of both worlds. I stay connected to the work that I love through the CPRC, but also bring forward an opportunity to phase into retirement,” Whitcomb said.
“Pam has been an invaluable member of the CPRC for the last seven years and I am excited to see her take the helm as director. I am extremely confident in her abilities and know we will have a smooth leadership transition.”
Whitcomb will mentor undergraduate and graduate students in their career and professional development through individual consultation, group instruction, and public speaking presentations. She’ll also lead instructional seminars for students through the CPRC’s EDGE program, and serve as a strategic planning resource during the CPRC staff’s transition.
As the CPRC’s assistant director since 2014, Ferman has managed on-campus recruiting, which includes employer outreach and bringing forth internship and job opportunities to St. Bonaventure students. She’s also worked with students through individual appointments in support of their professional development.
“My appreciation for Connie and what she has built to make the CPRC what it is today is something that I hope to continue to grow and build. It is an honor for me to remain a part of this university and be able to work with such a great community of people,” said Ferman.
Ferman holds a bachelor’s degree in education from Geneva College and a master’s degree in higher education from Drexel University. Learn more about Ferman on her LinkedIn profile.
