Meet new blogger Meridith Freese

171A6085I graduated from Iowa State University in December of last year and I was primed and ready.  I knew it all. I had my college degree in hand and I was ready to take on this so-called “real” world. 

I was, after all, an event management major and who wouldn’t want to bring me on as an employee to change the course of business going forward. Well, perhaps a slight miscalculation on my part. Maybe I was not as ready to change the face of American business as I thought. Oh, if only I knew then what I know now and that’s why I’m writing this blog.

My goal is to soothe the transition for the recent grad and provide some wisdom for those in the first stage of their career who are getting ready to move on to phase II. Everything from gaining that all important first job to dealing with college loans, to generational issues, to taking appropriate credit for your work, to career guidance – mentorship, and on and on. Are you kidding me, you didn’t get all of this in college?? And what do you mean there are no more summer vacations??

With each blog I want to provide you with great insight into this strange world we now find ourselves in. We don’t want to just survive, we want to thrive. We want to make a difference with our employer and we want to make a difference in the community where we live.  We want it all and we’re not going apologize for that.

This transition may have been a little scary at the start, but now I look at it a lot differently. This new world needs the talent, energy and passion we bring every day.  And, each day we can learn a little from our surroundings that will only help us prepare to be effective leaders for many years to come. Get on board, it’s going to be a great ride!

I want to write about things that matter to you! Reach out to me, I would love to get to know you and make a difference for any young professional.
