Advice for students and young alumni:
“Take advantage of all of the connections you’ve made to this point in your life, be it professional or personal. Those professional connections will help you get your foot in the door and establish yourself in the workforce, and the personal connections you’ve made help ease the stress. Don’t let growing up mean you’ve outgrown the people who helped you get there.”
