What advice would you give to a high school or college student who aspires to do what you do? Course of study? Experience? Internships? How to meet and learn from others in the field? etc.
For me, I have a B.A. in Religion and an M.Ed. in Educational Administration. A better background would probably be a combination of Business Administration and Information Technology. Other professional positions with responsibilities for Account Management, Sales, and/or Communications are helpful. Military experience- which I do not have- would provide additional, valuable insights.
