"Jobs and what you think about them"

Gary talks with Ms. Julie Richmond-Blackburn about her career in College Administration, specifically the Admissions office. Julie explains that she embarked on this career later in life, after starting a family. She talks about having worked in several Administration departments at Quincy College in Massachusetts before taking a position in the Admissions Department. Julie walks through the various areas of responsibility of an Admissions Officer; highlighting the fact that it is a very ‘outward facing’ and active role that interacts with a variety of other college departments as well as governmental, educational and community groups across the State. She discusses the rewards of the role, especially as she attends graduation and sees students she recruited receiving their degree and embarking upon their next chapter. This is a candid inside look into a career that is much more dynamic and interactive than many realize.
