As a recent graduate myself, I know that it can be difficult to know what you want to do while you’re still in school. I graduated with a degree in English education, and so I prepared myself to teach high school kids about Shakespeare and wear heels everyday so that everyone knew I wasn’t a student.

To illustrate the shift, Bryant & Stratton College, an institution that has been at the forefront of workplace education & training since the…Continue
