Hi there! Well my current job is as a program manager for a large computer company. That means that I take a business problem, identify ways to solve it, assign team members to join and help, and lead all of us through to the end of the program, and hopefully a positive outcome. I started my college career studying to be an orthodontist. Once I got into all the science and chemistry courses, I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I then entered into the school of business to learn more about marketing and management. That is where I ended up finding a passion for leadership and recieved a degree in management. I have been able to use the degree for my last 22 years of work, and enjoy it very much.

Leslie recommends the following next steps:

  • Its tough to know what you are going to love as you grow more maturely and gain more experience. I suggest you keep asking questions and write down all the jobs that interest you.
  • After you have a list of at least 10 jobs, identify what is in common with all of those or the majority of them so you can start narrowing down a category for study. This exercise will help you see where you true interest lies and get you closer to ideas for areas of study. Good luck!

My first job title was "secretary" which has now been replaced with administrative titles. From there I was promoted to "Coordinator" and then to "Manager." I had the opportunity to hold a variety of Management positions over the years.


What I've learned is that titles are not what's really important, and when people ask about your title they often are more interested in knowing what you do and how you feel about what you do.


With every good wish!
