I recently earned my graduate degree and now work as an analyst for a large corporation. When I began my career I set personal goals to rapidly move up in the company; however, I quickly realized my book knowledge was strongly developed but I was lacking the skills and the experience in project management and people management that were necessary to be a leader at my company.
The Pasadena Jaycees have given me the skills, the confidence, and the experience that would take me years in my company to develop. I now feel like I have a competitive edge over other people my age and know my goals of becoming a young leader in the business world are very much achievable!
