Rheiner resigns to pursue career goals
"We've done good work here, but now it is time for me to move on with no regrets," Rheiner said.
Rheiner is leaving his position to start his own business in career counseling and educational consulting. The company, Career & Educational Consulting Services, will be located at 6 Mulberry Court in Selinsgrove.
"After many years of preparation I am moving on to do that which I have always encouraged people to do: I will be pursuing a career in something that I am passionate about," Rheiner said in an e-mail to the Susquehanna community.
It has been Rheiner's goal to start his own business for the past 10 years.
"I've always told my students, 'You're going to work a long time, why not do something you love,'" Rheiner said.
"What I love doing the most is counseling, coaching, presenting, and consulting," he said.
Rheiner is a career counselor here at Susquehanna, but in his new job, he will be eliminating a lot of the administrative details that accompany working for a university, he said.
"I have learned so much from the students here," Rheiner said. "It has reinforced my belief that this is what I want to do. The students are great. I have really enjoyed working with them."
Rheiner said he encourages students to continue to take advantage of everything the Center for Career Services has to offer.
"I came here with the idea to create a top notch career center," Rheiner said. "I have no doubt that it will continue to grow from what we have established here and continue to service the students."
Senior Lesley MacPherson said, "Michael is available to all students, to help bridge the gap between now and our futures."
In addition to his job with career services, Rheiner teaches Introduction to Theater. He said that he will continue to teach the course.
Rheiner's resignation will be effective May 19.
