Welcome to the eleventh episode of Get This Girl a Job! In this podcast, Rosana and I interview recent college graduates to talk about the steps they took to get their first jobs in different industries. The questions follow the development of their career from their first year of college, to how their field of study changed, to the internships they had over the summer, to how they got hired for their very first job! We take turns conducting interviews, and every third week, we co-host a mini-episode answering questions from the audience.

I learned so much interviewing Leah Fulmer for today’s episode of Get This Girl a Job.
Leah graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a double major in Astronomy and Spanish. She is now living in Tucson, Arizona and working as a data reduction specialist at the National Optical Astronomy Observatory.
Through her experience in astronomy and beyond, Leah has gathered wisdom on how to seek out mentors and build relationships with people that can be applied to work in any field. Since recording this podcast, Leah has decided to attend the University of Washington to pursue a PhD in astronomy this fall.
A huge thank you to Leah Fulmer for sharing her story, to Stephanie Dorris for designing our logo, and to Parker Mee for editing this episode.
