Episode 68 is with Jessica Philo, who recently started working as a Student Services Specialist at the University of Pittsburgh. Jessica shares with us how she got into higher education (she was an advertising major in undergrad) and we chat about what life is like in a big city compared to a smaller town. Jessica explains why everyone should hug the folks on campus who schedule classes, as she gives us a behind the scenes look at the process. We also talk about Jessica’s blog, J Seeks Joy, and where she comes up with content inspiration.
