I recently joined fellow alumni and current students for a career and networking reception thrown by my alma mater. It's hard to believe so much time has passed between my college days and now — I certainly don't feel that much older. Still, I found myself on the answer end of the question-and-answer session between soon-to-be college graduates and alumni giving career advice.
The problem was that I don't have a real "this is how I got here" story. I suppose my career is the result of hard work, sheer luck, and an unusual career path combination of writing and banking. Still, I had to pursue a couple of different careers before I found a good fit, and here I am! How about you — how did your education shape your career choices?
