Enlightening, exciting, intriguing, stressful, challenging.

Q: What is it about your situation now that makes you a happy grad?

I am a happy grad because I feel my college education and experience prepared me well for the adult world. I have a career at a successful company in my desired field of study - what more could a new grad want!?

Q: What are the best things about your current role?

I enjoy working on a team of designers and collaborating on projects, having a variety in the type of work I do, and working at a company with all different types of people with different areas of expertise.

Q: What advice would you give recent grads today about leaving college, and finding a career and life they love?

I would advise recent grads to stay active in the field they want to pursue a career in no matter what (whether its through volunteer work, pro bono jobs, etc.). Staying active in their field will show future employers their dedication [and help them build] experience. I'd also advise recent grads to network as much as possible! They should take advantage of their college's alumni network - I found that to be extremely helpful.

Q: What are some of the best things about being a recent grad?
