Leadership, Innovation, and the Liberal Arts Center Director Katie Krimmel is among the higher ed professionals and professors quoted in this PhillyVoice article full of words of wisdom for the Class of 2019 as they prepare to begin college. Krimmel wrote about landing a job after graduation.

From the article:

“Engage in any activity where you can test your classroom learning and interests. This exploration can happen through internships, job shadowing and informational interviews with friends, family and your school’s alumni population. You will learn about different pathways and learn about yourself, setting you on a path to discover your dream job. Strongly consider what ‘dream job’ means to you. There are many factors to consider, and thinking about those factors intentionally will help guide your decision-making process. Another piece of advice to keep in mind is that no matter what the job, if you consistently come from a frame that each position is a learning opportunity, you will continue to develop and grow as a person, leading you closer and closer to your dream job, whatever it is or may become.”
