Career Coach Meditations…

Just thought I'd share a recent of mine reflection with those of you who are interested. I think it's extremely relevant!: Job searching and career management are hard. There are resources to help manage those hardships, but many communities don’t have access to them. Whether it's financial constraints, lack of resource availability in their sphere,...

Am I From California or the U.S.?

Brandon the Gallant

Is African Californian a thing?

My first travel abroad experience was funny. Yup, that’s how I’d describe it. Not like “ha ha” funny (even though there was a whole lotta that too), but funny like “Ya know, I never really thought about [insert experience].

Ever Been Tired?

I played sports a lot growing up. Although basketball was by far my favorite, and still is, the biggest lesson I learned from a sport came from cross country. I took up cross country by joining my middle school team over the summer going into 7th grade. It was August, which meant it was the... Continue Reading →
