Sarah Bast is a recent graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and minors in Exercise Science and Sociology. She is originally from Long Island, New York, but certainly has an affinity for Pittsburgh after spending her college years here. She also plans to pursue her Master’s degree in Public Administration.
Sarah’s work as a First Year Mentor for Pitt’s Office of New Student Programs, planning events to acclimate new students to their surroundings, is ideal background for her position as the Student Services and Development Associate at New Century Careers. Sarah will be working with trainees in the Manufacturing 2000 pre-apprenticeship program, as well as assisting with grant writing and communicating with stakeholders in the region. Sarah’s interest in training comes naturally. Her mother is a Work-Based Learning Coordinator at GC Tech in Levittown, NY.
"Working at New Century Careers has been such a rewarding experience. The different facets of my work here reflect the type of work I had hoped to do after graduating college. Doing this work with such a great team makes it even better!"
