Hi Ella,

This is a very insightful question. Thank you for asking. It had a tremendous impact on my career. I had just graduated from college shortly before the crisis. I originally wanted to go into marketing research, but in a recession like that, marketing budgets are often first to go. On the other hand, a lot of people were going back to school to be more competitive in the job competition. So I ended up working in higher education. It wasn't in my plan, but I love working with students.

Hope this helps!
