Laura Chiuppi came to Boise State University in early 2016 as a career advisor and was promoted to director of COBE Career Services in January 2017.
She is an east coast native, born and raised in Massachusetts. After completing her undergraduate degree, Laura struggled to find a career that aligned with her interests and expertise. This experience led her to go back to school and refocus her career goals. In 2014, she completed her master’s degree in education at UMASS Boston, specializing in administration. While in Boston, Laura served as assistant director for four years at an international school.
Laura has a passion and talent for working with people. Her strong interpersonal skills allow her to connect with a diverse student population. In her position as director of COBE Career Services, she helps students identify their strengths and meet their career goals through exploration, development, knowledge and preparation. She inspires students to actively participate in their education and encourages them to think about their career goals early and often. Laura has developed a series of event programming centered on helping students build a professional network and develop job skills.
Associate Dean Keith Harvey looks forward to increased student success with Laura’s work in Career Services.
“Laura’s passion for student outcomes and highly successful relationship building efforts with employers across the Treasure Valley have positioned the COBE Career Services startup to deliver a suite of career offerings that will propel our graduates to success in initial career placement and beyond,” said Harvey.
Laura is thrilled to be a part of the Boise State community and proud to work for the College of Business and Economics where collaboration and innovation are valued. Laura strives to foster connections with the business community that will promote economic prosperity, and build and retain our young, talented workforce.
