Yesterday we kicked off our Fall Speaker Series with CEO of Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) and Michigan State University alum (#GoGreen), Nathan Ohle. As a former Senior Advisor at the U.S. Economic Development Administration during the Obama administration and Board Relations Liaison for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Nathan offered insight to national and local policy—and valuable professional development advice:
“The key to every one of my jobs was built on a relationship that I had maintained. You can have as many business cards as you want, but actually putting in the time to build connections goes a lot farther. Even if you don’t have anything to ask of them, showing you care matters.”
We’re grateful to have fellow Spartans invest in our students and our program. Thank you, Nathan!
