In this episode, I interview Brittany Avila, a faculty member and academic advisor at the University of Nevada, Reno, and host of the Career Journey podcast. Brittany and I discuss how being a first-generation college student motivates her to help students understand through stories that career decisions are not linear. We talk about the misperception that you cannot do anything with a bachelor’s degree and an assignment she created to expose students to the diverse applications of the knowledge and skills gained through the psychology major. Brittany and I play “Guess the Job Title” and identify bachelor-level jobs that pay more than some doctoral-level jobs.
