Career Cabaret: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Employment
Every successful person has a humorous anecdote about a mistake they made as they started their professional career. We are collecting these stories and offering them to the Class of 2012 as an opportunity to listen, laugh, and learn from our successful Wagner alumni. If you have a story to contribute, submit your anecdote by February 22. Include your name, class year, major, what you learned from this mistake, current employer, and job title. Please indicate if you would prefer to remain anonymous.
