How do you utilize your liberal arts degree in your career?
I use my degree everyday in my role. I am able to communicate effectively and also analyze the business needs through thoughtful analysis. I am also able to problem solve whenever tasks are given to me.
How did you get to where you are today? What influenced your decision to pursue this path?
I surrounded myself with people who encouraged and believed in me. My family, mentors, and friends helped me in learning how to work hard and keep learning. I am passionate about business and getting to meet the needs of people, so this is a perfect path for me to practice both!

Use the resources that are available to you. Most students never used the resources while I was in school. Things like practice interviews, career fairs, and employer panels are crucial in learning for yourself how to approach your journey.
