What career path led to your current position?
I interned for a technology recruiting and professional services company during my final year of grad school. The VP of Professional Services was interested in my background in psychology. Once I completed my masters, he hired me to work with our technology teams. I became involved in our organizational training and client services programs. After two years, I joined a healthcare start up as their technology and program manager specialist. I’m currently working for this organization. I specialize in designing technology products and managing new product offerings.
What kind of credentials, education, training, prior experience are needed to pursue this path?
A bachelor’s degree is absolutely required. A master’s degree is strongly preferred but could be acquired later. More than anything, you need a strong work ethic and a drive to solve any problem.
How was your major and/or your degree from UD related to your current work?
My background in psychology has proved invaluable. My employers specifically hired me for the psychological insights I bring to the table.
