Barbara Thomson

Associate Director for Technology & Data Management

Barbara Thomson

As the Associate Director, I oversee the technical resources provided by Career Exploration and Success that are geared to help you reach your career development goals, as well as the assessment projects conducted by our team. Our mission is to provide effective and useful career information and applications that will enable you to succeed in achieving academic and career success.

Prior to serving in this role at Rutgers, I was involved with providing career planning assistance to students not only at Rutgers, but also at Monmouth University, Towson University, and Florida State University.

I have a master’s degree in counseling and human systems from Florida State University and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Susquehanna University, as well as academic backgrounds in accounting and technology.

My advice for students is to take advantage of the resources available at Rutgers to discover your purpose and passion. Always work hard to pursue your goals. Doing so will help to bring you greater joy, make a meaningful contribution to the world, feel satisfied with your work, and make each day more enjoyable.
