Dear NAAAP Family,
When I was young college student at the University of California, Irvine, I was eager to build my professional career. However, I didn’t know where to begin. Although I could Google everything online, I wanted to learn more at a faster pace. I wanted access to the largest knowledge platform possible filled with great content about every possible career field imaginable.
And although this dream sounded crazy back then, I was determined. I dedicated hours of research and talked to hundreds of working professionals in order to better understand what career paths I liked. Looking back at that experience though, I knew there had to be a better way for seasoned professionals and fresh college graduates to discover their professional passions and continue growing in their career.
As such, that is why I created NAAAP’s latest venture. Since day 1 of my involvement with NAAAP, I have been surrounded by some of the most passionate people I have ever met. From my local chapter in Orange County to the NAAAP National team (with members based all across North America), I am lucky enough to have been exposed to such a diverse work environment. With all of our different cultural and professional backgrounds, I wanted to share their knowledge and experiences with the world. That is why I am proud to announce the introduction of the NAAAP Blog.
Since the very beginning, I’ve envisioned this blog as the cornerstone of the NAAAP community, a knowledge platform showcasing our members/friends of the community. More importantly though, I wanted this platform to be the cornerstone for every future young professional’s career development. As such, what will make us different is that every blog post will be crafted in a narrative structure. As a marketing professional, I believe the most powerful form of teaching is through storytelling.
I hope that you will join us in this effort!
