Berkeley College Prepares Alumna for Management Career in Graphics and Printing
A resident of Newark, NJ, Yashoda Boodhoo became one of the first students to take classes on the Berkeley College Newark campus, which opened in 2006. “It was an amazing feeling to be a part of history as we took a group picture for the opening,” Ms. Boodhoo said. “It was a new environment for all of us, but we figured our way around together. It brought us closer together as classmates.”
Ms. Boodhoo graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration from Berkeley College in 2010, taking courses both in Newark and Midtown Manhattan. Looking to excel in a management occupation, she credits Berkeley College with helping prepare her for a professional, fast-paced environment where organization and time management are keys to success. “It was initially a challenge for me, but I learned the importance of always planning ahead and being prepared with different strategies. You never know when you will need a backup plan,” she said.
Shortly after graduating, the Berkeley College Career Services Department introduced Ms. Boodhoo to graphics and printing company Nextwave Web in Paterson, NJ. As Project Manager, she oversees all aspects of the company’s printing projects, including specifications, layouts, design, proof approvals, distribution and scheduling.
