Alma Matters was born out of a personal frustration. There was nothing I could relate to as a recent college graduate during my career search and no true guidance in figuring out my path - despite the fact that thousands had been in my position. School alumni is very underutilized - it’s such a large, accomplished network that younger alums and students who are currently undergraduates have no real visibility into. I wanted to fix that.
Introducing a new podcast about the journey after college - the "How I Built This" for successful Penn graduates (for now).
