"Managing your career and taking advantage of your prior (not unrelated!) experience"
What do careers in sales and engineering have in common? What does being a fighter pilot have to do with being in the infantry? This talk will explore how you might use - and not shy away from - other career experiences in your current endeavor. Insight and empathy can often come from seemingly tangential things.
