I’m gonna be honest, I don’t really understand what other people “do” for a living. When someone says, “I am a consultant” or “I work in technology”, I have no idea what that means – what do they do all day? What education do they have? What do they like about their job, and what could they do without? Would I like that field of work? Even in a world inundated with technology, there’s still no app to input, say, “data scientist”, and get a firsthand account of what that job is like. I’ve always felt that there has to be a better way to learn more about the different jobs available to us, especially BEFORE we graduate or go back for advanced education.
A few weeks ago, I looked around at a party and realized all my friends are successful at very interesting, diverse jobs. There’s doctors, marketers, pilates studio owners, and Googlers. I had a moment of inspiration: what if they could share their stories so other women interested in these same fields can learn more? Thus, I was inspired to start a new part of my blog called “Fierce Jobs”. I’ll feature successful women who work in a variety of jobs, and the details of their careers, so if you are just graduating or looking to change fields, you might be inspired by them too. Women sharing information with other women, it’s what we must do!
For our very first Fierce Jobs, we are talking to Jenny, who works in Healthcare. She currently lives in Minnesota, loves pop culture and moscato, and is getting married to the man of her dreams in a few short weeks! Jenny is known for her honesty, smarts, and hilarious stories. You’re gonna love her too, I just know it…
Alaina: Hi, Jenny. Thanks for being one of my best friends. Let’s start with some fun stuff to warm up. You’ve travelled so much, where is your favorite place in the world?
Jenny: The south of France. French wine, Italian food and a beach! With best friends, obviously.
