Groups I Identify With:
After graduating from Oxy I moved to San Francisco where I eventually landed in recruiting at Juniper Square. Recruiting wasn’t really something I intended to pursue, but after I kind of fell into it I realized it really played to my strengths and utilized my liberal arts education. I’m more than happy to chat more about my career path or just general career stuff!
I read an article not too long ago that claimed that men will apply to a job if they think they meet about 60% of the criteria, while women will only apply if they think they meet 100%. I realized that I was doing that and really limiting myself because of it, so when I was looking for a new job I decided to apply to jobs like a man. I ended up landing my current position that I originally wasn’t sure if I was qualified for. My point being - you might be exactly what they’re looking for even if you don’t check every single box of the JD, but you won’t know if you don’t shoot your shot!
