    I was recently hired by Amazon as a Sr. Product Manager, but that likely wouldn't have happened if I didn't have College under my belt. I'd like to share my perspective on going to college and why, for me, I think it's still worth it in 2017 to go to College, despite the cost and investment in time.

    I was able to leverage my business school degree after a failed entrepreneurial venture and land a six figure job, that I used to pivot into an amazing role at Amazon. Ultimately, I like to view College as an insurance policy that you can pull from your back pocket in the event you need to course correct your life.
