Long Time, Imerman Update
I know you missed me, though I've been very busy working on some neat projects...sorry, I won't let it happen again!
This year I'm running the 8k for Imerman Angels, which is one of the largest cancer survivor networks in the world. We raised $1,058 is about 48 hours. Thank you all for your support (specially Mom :). Because it was too easy, I've increased my goal to $1,500, which should be a breeze.
MSU Speed Networking in East Lansing
I had an opportunity to get back to East Lansing earlier this month for MSU Speed Networking, which turned out being a huge success at Spartan Stadium. With over 250 students and professionals, each student was paired up with a professional for exactly 5 minutes to learn about professions and career goals. While the students had breaks, I had to go straight through with no breaks for about 3 hours. That said, it was refreshing to see so many students with driven and ambitious career goals. Quite different from my days at State! :)
