Graduate Assistant
Career Education

 

Logan Caswell is the Graduate Assistant on the Career Education Team here at the Toppel Career Center. Logan manages and works directly with Toppel’s undergraduate Peer Advisors on helping other students of UM with career development and exploration. This ranges from resume critiques, to interview prep, internship searches, networking or securing full time opportunities upon graduating. Logan also helps facilitate various outreach programs across campus to expand Toppel’s reach by increasing student’s awareness of the resources the center has to offer. 

In addition to his role at Toppel, Logan is a first-year graduate student and Teaching Assistant in the Music Business and Entertainment Industries Program here at the Frost School of Music at UM. Prior to UM, Logan attended both Merrimack College and Berklee College of Music back in his home state of Massachusetts. It was there that Logan received a bachelor’s degree in both marketing and finance while minoring in digital design. 

Merrimack College gave Logan his first opportunity to become heavily involved with campus life and student affairs. As an undergraduate student, he rose to become a third-year senior resident advisor, lab assistant for the college’s financial markets lab and even helped launch a student lead financial coaching centers for students and community members in the country, one of the first of its kind.

Upon graduating, Logan gained further experience in both corporate finance and advertising with his position at Arnold Worldwide, a long-standing Boston advertising agency and sister entity of Havas Media. It was there that Logan worked with clients such as Jack Daniels, Carnival Cruise Line, Progressive Insurance and pitches for BMW and Subway. Before leaving Arnold Worldwide, Logan decided that attending graduate school full time would be his next career move, which lead him to the Graduate Assistantship with Toppel.

With such a wide range of experience in business, graphic design, music and higher education in just the last five years alone, Logan brings not only a fresh, but relevant take on the current job market. He relates to the struggles students and recent grads face when determining what career is right for them all the while successfully showing them how to make it a reality. 

“Always remain open minded to opportunities that come your way, as most of the time the unplanned and unexpected moments are the ones that make your career.” 

“Do not compare your path to your peers because everyone is on a different timeline and there is never just one way to get there.”
