Leadership Lessons for New Professionals
Lonabocker, Louise
College and University, v87 n4 p25-26, 28 Spr 2012
Forty years ago, the author arrived in Boston with an associate's degree and two years' experience in the corporate world. The idea of working at a college appealed, so she boarded the B line trolley to Boston College. She arrived on campus, found the human resources office, took a typing test, interviewed with the director of freshman financial aid, and received an offer of employment the following week. She has been there ever since. Over the years, she admittedly has been in the right place at the right time. Not only was she in the right place at the right time, but she also had the privilege of working with leaders and mentors who went on to become nationally recognized experts in enrollment management, information technology, and testing and measurement. In this article, the author shares some of the lessons she learned from these leaders.
