My road in life has taken me all over.
First job out of college required relocating somewhere totally new and unfamiliar in a field I wasn't sure if I was interested in, but this gave me a good foundation to work within higher education.
I have the AHA moment of what I want to go back to school for. I finally figured out how to align my interests and experiences in a field I find interesting.
After working within higher education, I then realized this was not quite the field for me. Now what?
I get into grad school and complete the 2-year program while working full-time. Taking on small, internal projects relevant to my degree helped me build my resume for future jobs.
I job hop to another non-profit where the people are great but there is no room for growth.
I graduated! And then spent months interviewing with nothing coming from it. Cue endless frustrations and me thinking my degree was not worth what I thought it was.
I job hop again to another, bigger non-profit where there is more opportunity but this organizations face a lot of internal struggles which made my job very difficult.
After 9 months, I land my dream job and begin working within a field I love!

Helping People

Day to Day

Consulting is essentially coming in to any organization that is facing a small or large scale problem. As a consultant, I get to know the client and help them develop a strategy to address their organizational problems and ultimately making them more productive and profitable. No day is the same because there is always something new going on. Common problems can be mergers and acquisitions, implementing new technology, or develop a training program for a specific department.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

Find someone in the profession or position you're interested in and reach out to them to set up a professional interview. You may get some people who decline or just do not respond to your requests, but it was these types of conversations that prompted me to continue researching and learning more about the profession I wanted to be in.

The Noise I Shed

From Society in General:

"Not qualified for advanced level positions due to obtaining my Master's degree, overqualified for entry level positions due to the same reason, and my "unique background" was not what most organizations would look for"
