On Security and Equity

  1. Visit with your university’s career help center as frequently as you can. They are often a great resource to polish your resumes and prepare you for interviews. (On a side note: Universities often have a TON of free resources for students to use and they are not utilized as widely as they should be! Educate yourself about campus resources and ensure that you use them. )
  2. Financial independence, no matter what, is key. Research ways to become more financially literate (there are SO many free and credible resources online) and save money. This will allow you the freedom to choose a job/environment that best suits you.
  3. Professional development is equally about emotional equity. Make sure to support other women you encounter! Starting conversations about gender equality and inclusion for all genders is a great step forward in developing an empathetic mindset.
