Stephanie’s Answer

Hi there! I am a speech-language pathologist!

1. Why did you choose this career choice? I chose to study this field because I wanted a career that involved helping others. Growing up my younger brother went to speech therapy, so that also inspired my choice too!

2. Why did you decide to work in this industry? I currently work as a speech-language pathologist for a non-for-profit in Philadelphia, providing evaluations to preschool-age children. I enjoy helping others, and empowering families by connecting to resources (like recommendations for additional evaluations, mental health referrals, medical assistance, encouraging them to enroll their child in school, etc.). I love working with families in Philadelphia because I have the opportunity to interact with families and people from various backgrounds, languages and cultures that are different from my own.

3. What kinds of decisions do you make in your role? I decide (with a team of other related professionals-special education teachers, Physical therapists, and occupational therapists) if the children we evaluate are eligible and have a need for special education services based on state criteria. I base these decisions based on observations, parent report, teacher/previous therapist reports, standard testing, and informal testing.

Kim’s Answer

Hi Simon!

I did consulting work for attorneys on Civil Rights cases.
1. Why? It gave me the opportunity to work for myself, by myself, and set my own hours. I believe that being a retired police officer, I thought differently than the attorneys, and could give them insight into how police think.
2. Law, and specifically Civil Rights Law, has always been dear to me. We are a nation founded on the Rule of Law. Additionally, I believe the bad police officers make it more difficult for the good police officers to do their jobs, and need to be held accountable.
3. All decisions were mine alone. Billing rate, whether or not to accept a client, etc.

good luck on the assignment!

Kristin’s Answer

Hello! I am a Software Product Manager working in Education Technology.

1. I chose this path because Product Management requires a balance of my strengths and weaknesses. It may sound crazy, but I think it's important to find a role where you feel at least a little bit challenged in order to stay engaged. I am a supportive and helpful person by nature and tend to be organized, which are assets for this role. But the role also requires being comfortable with uncertainty with is something I need to work at constantly to improve.

2. After college, I was a 4th grade teacher for 2 years. I decided that staying in the classroom wasn't for me, but I knew I needed to use the experiences I had to make an impact on education by building software to support teachers since that was so important for me as a beginning teacher. Being a teacher was so challenging, and that experience made me realize that I wanted a career where I could make the lives of other teachers easier, if only a little bit.

3. I'm mostly contributing to decisions about what product feedback should be prioritized and when to address various challenges.

Emily’s Answer

1. Why did you choose this career choice?
I went into the mortgage industry to push myself with speaking to people, while also having an opportunity to make a difference in people's lives. It also gave me insight into an industry that I didn't know much about at the time.

2. Why did you decide to work in this industry?
When I first started I originally was in banking, which was sales, but I saw it as building relationships with my clients to help them achieve their financial goals. I worked on the refinance side, so the clients I spoke to were looking to save money, pay their home off faster, do home improvements - big decisions that don't happen every day. Listening to a client's story and helping them find a solution that was best for their family was very rewarding.
Once I had a baby I joined our underwriting team to help with work-life balance. While I'm no longer speaking to others as a part of my role, I get to embrace my introversion and love how process based things are. I verify property types, and researching different counties can be a challenge, but it's a welcomed one. I get to push myself every day to ensure our clients have their loans set up correctly at the start of the process, allowing things to go smoothly.

3.What kinds of decisions do you make in your role?
In banking I was the 'fresh set of eyes' in a clients situation to help them see what the best method would be in helping them achieve their goals based off of their finances - taking into account not just what is on the credit report, but their true net at the end of each month, what they're able to save, what they would like to save, etc.

In underwriting/property verification I research each subject with all of their associated documents to determine the property type. Most are pretty straight forward when you know what to look for, others I may not have access to certain documents and have to make a decision based on what I have available.
Thank you comment icon I appreciate you taking the time to answer this. Simon
