Megan Scheldt joined the Boerigter Center for Calling and Career team in 2015.
Megan’s role at Hope helps close the gap between college and career by giving students invaluable experiences to foster new relationships with working professionals and alumni. Additionally, she helps coordinate various on- and off-campus programming to encourage students to step outside their comfort zone and build a network. She also works with students through the design and delivery of career-related workshops as well as helping students refine their resume, online presence and job/internship search skills. In addition to these key areas Megan supervises a team of 14 student employees called Career Ambassadors.
Megan also serves the college as an instructor in the Leadership minor and advisor to the Kappa Delta Chi sorority, and she participates as a member of the Grievance Process Pool. Scheldt also spent three years on the staff of the women’s lacrosse program at Hope College.
