Judson helped me gain confidence in presentations and public speaking. The experience also helped with my writing skills for the next level of plan design, plan evaluation and statistics with my current job.

It helped me see human services not just for a typical non-for-profit type job, but for the corporate job market.

Be creative with your studies. I have a human service degree and work in treasury and finance. Keep your eyes open to opportunities that allow you to bring what you learned into a new dynamic job.
