Julia Hansen, Manager of Planning, is a strong advocate for lifelong learning. She pursued her undergraduate degree as a mature student, took certificate and general interest courses; and just recently, completed her Master’s Degree in Leadership.
“Lifelong learning is something that I practice in my own life. In my learning journey, I am fortunate to be surrounded by people who allowed me to learn; as a result, I gained the courage to push myself to go out of my comfort zone. I also realized that learning may take time, and may not give “immediate returns”, but it is never a waste of time. There will always be opportunities to put that learning to use.” ~Julia
This 33-minute dialogue on Lifelong Learning as a Tool in Building Your Career, describes Dr. Jacquelyn Malcolm’s career path to becoming the CIO and VP of Enrollment, Marketing & Communications. Dr. Malcolm encourages women to apply for positions they are not 100% qualified or ready for. One’s willingness to learn on the job and confidence in one’s self can be proof of one’s commitment and ability to rise to the challenge. This dialogue is also a great eye-opener for hiring managers --- to be open to providing opportunities for advancement, even those candidates who don’t hit all of the checkbox items.
