Hello! My name is Evelyn Nigon and I am currently a sophomore English and Communications major at St. Kate’s. I am from Faribault Minnesota but really enjoy living and exploring the cities during the school year. Some of my favorite things to do include climbing, reading, kayaking, and spending time with friends. I have participated in the clay club on campus, but with all of the crazy changes that occurred last spring, I lost the chance to join other clubs and activities, like the study abroad program, which I plan to participate in sometime next year!
Here in the Career Development Center office, my main focus is on posting information to our social media sites. I create graphics, organize, and schedule all of the content that we share. My goal is to make our social media platforms a place where it is easy to find information about career development and events we are sponsoring. Much of the information shared on social media are condensed versions of resources we offer in the Career Development Center. If anything strikes your interest, reach out to us. Chances are good that we have more in-depth information!
Most often I can be found in the back offices of the Career Development Center and would love to assist you in any way. The Career Development office is here to make your career aspirations more easily attainable, so we would love to meet you!

Hello! My name is Mandy Hay, and I am a senior English and Communication Studies double major at St. Catherine University.
At school, you can find me editing and writing articles and for The Wheel, singing in the St. Catherine University Women’s Choir, and working as a Career Assistant and Peer Advisor in the Career Development Center. I also work as a Leasing Consultant and trainer at my apartment building’s leasing office. My extensive work experience sets me up for success in many different industries including marketing, real estate, communications, journalism, or human relations.
In the Career Development Center, I spend most of my time working at the front desk, helping students with their resumes and cover letters, and writing alumni feature blogs. My most significant strengths are organization and written communication. Because of this, jobs such as creating calendars for the office and answering emails are my forte. I love working as a part of the Career Development team, and I am always willing and eager to answer any questions about our office and what we offer for students, whether I am sitting at the front desk or walking to class.
When I graduate in May, I am excited to go into the workforce and share my expertise with the world. I am flexible and willing to relocate somewhere that I can be active outside year-round and begin my lifestyle/travel blog.
