Best Oxy Class:
International Development w/Prof Faegri or CSP with Prof Drier. Both were classes were very inspirational and taught me a lot of real world knowledge.
Groups I Identify With:
I'm originally from Portland, but loved LA so much that after graduation I stayed and have been here ever since. While at Oxy I was very involved in Greek Life serving as CAO and CEO for Kappa Alpha Theta. I've been a sneakerhead and into fashion for as long as I can remember. So, after temping and job hopping for the first year post-Oxy I landed my dream job as a Sales Analyst at REVOLVE, and have been there for 5 years.
It's OK to start a job and realize you want to go down another path. Someone told me "don't create a path you don't want", and that really resonated with me. Reach out to any of you're connections on LinkedIn, build relationships, and don't be afraid to ask questions. It's really all about who you know and who knows you. Networking doesn't just happen on LinkedIn or at a career fair.
