Minsoo Goo is working as an Academic Advisor for the College of Business Advising and Student Engagement office because he cares about the students.
Eighteen years ago, his family sold everything and moved to United States. His parents wanted to give him more opportunities and better education, so they made a life changing decision to become a part of American Dream.
At the age of fourteen, Minsoo jumped right into the real world and started his career in Customer Relations. He had opportunities of working in various customer service and related industries where he acquired tremendous interpersonal and communication skills interacting with people from different cultures and diverse backgrounds.
Despite his success in customer relations industry, Minsoo wanted more, and he decided to help others. He chose to finish his secondary education while working more than 50 hours per week! That’s when he realized that there is a lack of support for those of marginalized and underrepresented student populations including nontraditional and adult students like himself.
With his specific and specialized skillset, Minsoo started his career in Student Affairs as a Concierge at Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska. During his time of employment, he was able to prove and showcase his ability to work with students from diverse backgrounds. He is proud of the work he did at MCC. During his time there, he became the founder of first Asian-American student organization, F.A.S.T (Finding Asian Students’ True path) after realizing the need of minority student representation.
After joining the UNL College of Business’ advising team, Minsoo continues to work with students and assist them reaching their true potential. Outside of work, Minsoo spends much of his time with his cats, watching true crime shows, and volunteering on his spare time.
