The analytical and soft skills that my bachelor’s degree in political science taught me have been an invaluable resource in my career. After I graduated from NC State, I worked in a rural area of Japan for four years teaching high school, a job I would have never have gotten without my degree.
Now I work for a Raleigh-based software company, coaching clients about how they can use data analysis to optimize their communications and marketing efforts. NC State’s courses in statistics and film gave me the foundation to both understand the data and weave a story from it, giving my clients deeper insight into their branding.
