Introducing the Peer Coaches: Daniel Seely

Hello! My name is Daniel Seely and I am a Peer Career Coach in the Knowlton Center this year! I am a senior from Columbus majoring in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics with a minor in Music Performance. When I’m not at the Knowlton Center, you can find me down at Eisner playing in the Orchestra, Bluegrass Band, and String Quartet. Outside of the classroom I am very active in student government, Greek life, and religious life. I served as Student Body President last year and will continue to serve the senior class as a Senator this year. Off-campus, I volunteer for the Young Life ministry at Granville High School. In my free time, I love to play music with friends, cook, and workout. One fun fact about me is that I got engaged over the summer! After Denison, I will be moving back to Columbus to begin my career as a Senior Accountant at Nationwide!

I am very excited to begin working as a Peer Career Coach and start meeting with students! As a Peer Coach, I can help you write resumes and cover letters, build LinkedIn and Handshake profiles, equip you with Knowlton Connect resources, walk through career search questions, and connect you with other coaches.

Beginning your career/internship search can cause a lot of anxiety. There may be moments where you feel like you are way behind the in the process or even have no idea where to start. All of the peer coaches have been there before and we are here to help. Personally, the Knowlton Coaches were an anchor for me when I was frantically searching for a Junior summer internship. I thought that I had started too late and all the positions I wanted would be closed. The career coaches oriented me through the process and gave me a solid foundation of resources, strategies, and clear objectives. Most importantly, they gave me confidence in myself assured me that I would find a great opportunity for the summer (and they were right!). My best piece of advice for Denison students is to start the process early. Schedule an appointment with a peer coach on Handshake today!

I can’t wait to meet y’all and help you with your career journey! You can find me on the third floor of Burton Morgan for drop-in hours on Monday and Wednesdays 11:00am-12:20pm, Thursdays 10:30am-12:20pm, and Fridays 10:30-12:00. Feel free to also schedule an appointment with me on Handshake, I am happy to help!
