Career Development

Megan Goering '08 went from Kansan to San Franciscan by way of Grinnell. In this video, the Grinnell grad, now a global vendor manager at Google Enterprise, talks about how the diversity she encountered at Grinnell prepared her to build and lead teams across countries and continents. Since graduating from Grinnell, Goering has helped other Grinnellians by assisting with the coordination of a Silicon Valley Industry Tour for current students.

Grinnell College alumni have always been generous, offering their time and connections to move other Grinnellians along in their careers. In today's challenging job market, your support will not only help Grinnell students gain a competitive edge but also ultimately make a difference in their lives. The time you give a student now can lead to great things.
