Today Lynne Andrew gave us insight regarding her career accomplishments. Lynne is a very successful woman as seen in her biography here, http://www.goskyhawks.com/staff.aspx?staff=35 .While basketball had been a sport Lynne was very involved in as a child and into her young adult stage, she continued on to be a coach in the sport she so dearly loved. After all of her crazy coaching experiences, she moved on to the administrative side of collegiate sport. Lynne stressed that the most important thing in jobs is to keep connections and do not burn any bridges. She also explained how connections are the reason she is where she is today.

Today I have learned all about Lynne’s career and there are many things I will take away from listening to her experiences. The first and most important thing I am going to do in order to be successful in my career is network and find connections as well as maintain good relationships with others. I will also work hard for my program, not to be seen and awarded, but instead to make the program the best it can be.

Another thing I learned from Lynne that will be helpful for my future is that if there is a task to be done that nobody likes to do, then just do it. Just because you have a higher title then someone else doesn’t mean you do not share some of the responsibilities.

 

The last and most important thing I learned from Lynne that I can apply to my career is to love what you do. If you love what you do, you will be good at it and you will be happy with where you are at. For Lynne, it wasn’t about the money, it was about the students and their success and I want to follow in her footsteps because I agree %100.

 

Thank you Lynne
