Johnny Maloney joined the Palm Beach Gardens campus Career Center staff as a career advisor this past March. His background includes experience as an academic advisor and expertise in vocational rehabilitation counseling. He attended the University of South Florida for undergraduate studies, and then Florida Atlantic University for a master’s degree in education counseling. While at FAU, Johnny worked in various Student Affairs offices and joined the Board of Directors for Independence Works, an organization that contracts with Vocational Rehabilitation to assist people with disabilities in obtaining employment, where he continues to serve on the Board.
We are very happy to welcome Johnny to the Career Center because he brings an additional skill set to add to an already strong team. In addition to meeting with students one-on-one, he does outreach for the department and manages social media for all the campus Career Centers. Considering there is no mistaking he’s the department’s strong extrovert, it’s the perfect fit. If you ask him for a quote that sums things up, he will reply with, “All our dreams can come true — if we have the courage to pursue them.” which he says is one of his favorite Walt Disney quotes.
Johnny is looking forward to meeting career services colleagues from around the State at the 2016 FloridaACE conference.
