Things We Learned at Last Night’s Alumni Career Panel

  • “If you can look someone in the eye and say, ‘I’m good at marketing,’ and they believe you, then you’re not lying.”
  • “You will fail at things. It’s okay.”
  • “Don’t worry about the job title–read the job description and qualifications.  You’ll be surprised by what you’re qualified to do.”
  • “English is pretty much always a ‘related major.'”
  • “If you’re only motivated by money, you won’t be happy no matter how much money you make.”
  • “Get involved.”
