Exploring Career Pathways Early in the Journey with Julie Lammers

Julie Lammers is the SVP of Advocacy and Corporate Social Responsibility at American Student Assistance (ASA), an organization that is committed to increasing #opportunity for young people to have the tools necessary to plan for postsecondary and career success. She joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about exposing young people to a variety of potential career pathways as early as possible in their educational journeys.

We begin by hearing Julie’s origin story, which centers around her opportunity to intern for Teddy Kennedy while still in college. How can we provide opportunities for career exploration beginning in middle school and how can we allow for real work experience through internships and other programs for high school students? Mike asks Julie for her perspectives on the disruptions to the future of work powered by generative AI and we learn what she and team have planned for the coming years. Don’t miss it!
