Upon graduating from the applied management program at UAF, I had a job offer waiting for me at the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, one of Alaska’s industries toward which I had tailored my degree. Since accepting that position in 2014, I have been promoted three times. Alyeska recognized that I was not just graduating with a business degree; I was graduating with experience that I could apply to the workplace.
