Kris Peterson’s talk with the class was an uplifting one. Her path from journalism to working in the coffee industry to the top tech firms in the world showed that a journalism degree can be used for other occupations. It is a relief that if for some reason one day I want to change occupations, there are other options out there.

    I completely understand where you’re coming from, Justin. Sometimes I think, as college students, we believe we’ll have one job for our career. That’s probably because we’re always focused on getting that first job out of college. But more often than not, people’s careers are more like Peterson’s. I’ve heard many people tell me you’ll have more like seven or eight jobs throughout your career. A scary thought at first, but something we will have to learn to get used to.
