Show Notes

On this episode we interview Leah Hersey Class of 2017. She holds a Bachelors in Organizational Communications and has been for the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce in Investor relationships for a couple years now. 

  • Bachelors in Organizational Communications
  • There is benefit in going with a broad degree like Business Administration and then finding the area - you want to more narrowly focus on - within your course work. 
  • Found her passion for events and event planning in her extracurricular activities at Florida College. 
  • The number of degree options does not correlate with the number of career choices.
  • Internship with Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. Gained experience organizing events catering to the Fort Worth business community. 
  • Check out your local chamber of commerce! It’s a great way to get involved with your community. 
  • Focuses on developing relationships with investors and educating them on the investment opportunities in the Fort Worth, TX area. 
  • Florida College provides a lot of opportunities to get involved with different organizations and leadership positions. So much can be learned from the opportunities outside of the class room! 
  • It can be a challenge to identify a job or career path which will be fulfilling. Finding mentors and further exploring your interests (no matter how small!) can help you get unstuck and determine a path to take. 
  • Look to get involved in your local Florida College alumni group or summer camp. 
  • Advise to younger self: “Appreciate where you’re at…Don’t rush it.”
