Career services hosted Doug Smith for our Leaders in the Industry series on Wednesday, 3/11, and we had a great turnout! Doug provided an overview of our current economic state and his predictions for recovery. He offered great encouragement that despite the economy, there are opportunities to be had, even for starting your own business. The key is to be fearless, to step out of your comfort zone, and to try what you believe in! He notes getting any training that comes your way as very important, even if you don’t know how it fits in at the time. Also, your career path in any industry is not set in stone; so it is acceptable to change course as needed to find just the right opportunities.
