Elhum joins The College Planning Center from the Sacramento State Master’s Program in Counseling. Her concentration in Career Specialization is particularly helpful to the students she serves. As a College Planner, Elhum is intensely interested in helping students discover how their strengths and interests translate into an academic major and eventually their dream professions! Having experience administering and interpreting the Myers Briggs Type Indication (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory, Elhum is acutely aware of qualities that can propel students to success. She is inquisitive and excels at brainstorming to assist her students of all types: from the most outgoing to the highly introverted. 

Elhum’s most recent positions working for the UC Davis Internship and Career Center, and the Academic Advising and Career Center at Sacramento State University , have given her in-depth experience helping students plan their academics, refine resumes, and polish interview skills. She has presented workshops on Resume Writing, Interview Skills, Career Exploration, and Networking for Success. Throughout her college experience, Elhum gained an appreciation for the value of work through several part-time positions. She has held management positions and gained time management and organizational skills while juggling full-time academics and a part-time job. A Folsom High School graduate, Elhum is thrilled to be back working in her hometown!
