Question 1 of 29

If you could start your career over again, what direction would you take?

"I certainly do not regret the direction I have taken my career; however, if I had to completely start over in a new direction I would likely pursue a degree in Mechanical Engineering and become an Engineer. Both of my parents were Engineers and they seemed to have a very fulfilling career. They showed me some of the projects they completed and I was very impressed. I enjoy analytics and research which I tend to do a lot of in my role as an educator."
