Hello Jaime, I am a junior in high school and am taking a serious interest in research psychology. What should I know about this career?
Hi Sophia, I don't have direct experience in that area but I did study psychology in undergrad and it was a really interesting major - one that can be helpful for many different careers. I think the best thing to do to explore your interest is to find people who have taken this career path and learn about it directly from them. Good luck!

What is your best tip for gaining confidence to negotiate a raise or promotion?
Hi Elana - One of my favorite topics, as so many women shy away from negotiation. Let's break this into two parts: negotiating to get the job & once you are already inside. Negotiating salary (or other benefits) on your way in, is expected! If someone doesn't negotiate on their way in, they loose a few points with me. 90% of the women that I have hired, haven't negotiated. They would have received more but they accepted our first offer. A hiring manager always has a range and they never (or very rarely) start at the top of that range. They give themselves a little wiggle room, so that they can do the dance. But what you must remember is that timing is key. Don't start the negotiation until the time has come. I ensure that the employer has fallen in love with me, can't live without me and then we start to dance. And remember all facets are on the table: salary, sign-on, vacation, relo....you name it. Now once you are already inside, everything is different. I firmly believe that you have to let your goals be known and then you work extremely hard to get yourself there. You own your career, not your boss. I have never asked for a promotion or a raise. I have clearly stated my goals and then worked my butt off and it was always recognized. If you are clear in where you want to go, are working hard (really hard!) and you are not being recognized....then maybe you are in the wrong company/culture or working for the wrong person. Don't be afraid to jump ship for what you want. Don't threaten (I find it very unappealing)....find another opportunity and leave without burning any bridges. Cheers- TLC

In your opinion, what is the best way to help influence younger females to consider a career in a STEM field?
Many young women I talk to are really attracted to interdisciplinary fields, where there is emphasis on applications (contributing to the good of the world) and team work. Computational mathematics is a wonderful example. You can apply that almost anywhere now, from social sciences to the medical field, to design, to fluid flow, to architecture, to chemistry and particle physics, to biology and bioengineering, surgery, you name it. When I give talks to young women or girls, I focus on the diversity of applications, on how the underlying math is all very similar, and on how, as a computational mathematician, you are the glue that holds a design team together.

What opportunities should undergraduate senior take advantage of before graduation? Where can an undergraduate find these opportunities?
Two of your biggest opportunities: people and employment. Cultivating relationships, particularly with those who add value to your professional network, is essential. Professors and college administrators should know you by name and be able to tell others "She is such a superstar!" If you haven't done so already, get involved in campus clubs/activities so that leadership becomes a part of your personal brand. And develop a solid relationship with the advisor to any student organizations. Your second biggest opportunity is work experience. If you've done internships, awesome. If not find one asap. Whether paid or not, a campus job or internship will help you gain the professional experience to bolster your employment prospects post graduation. Congrats BTW!

Graduation is around the corner. What advice would you give to new college grads starting their first jobs?
Be the "YES" person! Once people know you are willing to work hard they will start to respect you and other doors will open. Stay late and put in the extra work. I promise people will notice. :)

I started my job in December not expecting to be in charge of day to day operations at our administrative office. Working for a small company, my co-worker (who is also 23) and I report directly to the owner. I was hired because of my extensive experience, but, because of my age and how old I was when I started, I don't always feel comfortable taking the reigns. "Fake it 'till you make it" is definitely becoming my new mantra!
