Question of the Week: What do you want to do when you graduate?

Oct. 10, 2011

Each week during the 2011 season, will ask each member of the University of Michigan volleyball team the same question as the "Question of the Week."

Week 8: What do you want to do when you are done playing volleyball and graduate from the University of Michigan?

Courtney Fletcher - When I graduate, which is approaching at a rate that I am not quite comfortable with, I want to go into either production for sports broadcasting or media relations for a team. I also love screenwriting and would like to write scripts in my spare time.

Lexi Dannemiller - After college, I am not sure what I want to do but ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer. They are my favorite animals, and I used to read children's books about them. I even tried convincing my parents to let me go to a dolphin training camp in Miami. The dream will never die.

Alex Hunt - I am currently trying to figure that out. I would like to find a job in which I can apply my communications degree such as sales, marketing, or advertising.

Catherine Yager - When I graduate from Michigan, I would like to be working with some sort of sports affiliated job, either with a professional sport or collegiate sport!

Jennifer Cross - After graduation, I would really like to explore the option of playing professional volleyball for a couple of years if I was able to. It would be a great way to see the world and some things only come once in life. After that, my plans are to hopefully attend medical school and see where that takes me. I would really love to stay involved in the sport and hopefully incorporate that into my career in some way.

Karlee Bruck - I am a little over a semester away from getting my degree to become an elementary school teacher!

Sloane Donhoff - I really want to get into marketing and brand management. My dream company to work for would be Procter and Gamble because they have such a variety of products and it would be amazing to work with some of the labels they have, like Olay, CoverGirl, Venus, Crest, Secret and multiple fragrances.

Michelle McMahon - I want to get into sports broadcasting when I graduate, hoping to start as a volleyball analyst and then working my way into sideline reporting for college football, which I have had a passion for since I was five. My second interest would be sports publicity, which would ideally entail representing individual athletes. I love sports and can't get enough so it would be the ideal job for me.

Olivia Reed - When I graduate I want to be a screenwriter. I would love to be a writer for Pixar.

Lauren Teknipp - I really want to be a sideline reporter for the NFL or NBA, just like what Erin Andrews does!

Claire McElheny - I am interested in health and nutrition. I am working on an internship at a pain clinic for next summer, which will be a great experience and hopefully open a lot of doors for when I graduate.

Lexi Erwin - I really want to give back for all the things in life that have been given to me. I would like to take a route in social work, and right now, I am starting to get interested in city planning for cities that cannot plan their cities to be efficient. I am also studying Spanish so I can reach more people. I do not know exactly what I want to do when I graduate, but this is a start!

Ally Sabol - I am not sure what I want to do, but I am going to major in communications. The classes are really interesting, and I have been thinking about doing something in public relations or advertising.

Brittany Lee - My dream job is to be a photographer for National Geographic.
