In this episode…
We address the class of 2020 who is graduating in an unprecedented time. Our conversation circulates around the challenges that these graduates are facing and how to be accountable and take control over what can be controlled. We talk through the feelings and roadblocks of being a recent graduate and how to keep moving forward through continuous learning and utilizing your most valuable resource - time.
Our follow-up panel brings together three recent graduates at different stages in their education paths to discuss the challenges and insights that they’ve confronted as a result of graduating in the midst of a global pandemic. Allison, Danny and Robyn have conversations about the shift to online learning, taking ownership of self-educating, and committing to being a lifelong learner.
