Neha's career stories

When you were a student, did you do anything outside of school to build skills or get knowledge that has helped your career?

I did lots of volunteer work related to my different areas of interest. Volunteering helped me do two things: 1. Make a difference in the community 2. I was able to learn more and get exposed to different fields, get some experience and figure out if I really wanted to pursue professions in those areas. 3. I was able to connect with mentors and leaders who helped me figure out my path. I also shadowed people that inspired me or were in roles that I thought were interesting.
