Each day, we're asking students to reflect upon and share values, interests, skills and other individual preferences that relate to professional and career decisions. We know that the ability to articulate aspects of your own life story, publicly and in professional settings, is one of the critical components in any job or internship search. Listen to a recording of an essay about one of MY beliefs that I hold strongly enough to share with you.
