You talked, we listened! CAPS now has walk-in hours at 5710!

Every Thursday from 4-5pm, you can stop by and talk to Bora Un! She is available to assist with questions about resume writing, job searching and general CAPS inquires. Before coming to CAPS, Bora worked at a non-profit staffing agency in Evanston. She recruited 17-24 year old job-seekers living with significant barriers to participate in the Summer Youth Employment Initiative funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. She also developed worksites for the federally funded program and established strong employee partners for the agency. Before transitioning into career counseling, Bora spent time teaching English and developing curriculum in Seoul, Korea and was also a Site Director for an afterschool tutoring program for “at-risk” students in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood. Bora earned her Master’s degree in Creative Writing from Northwestern University's School of Continuing Studies and her Bachelor's degree in English from Wellesley College.
