Career Conversations: Allen Lam

What do you do as a sound engineer? Most of what I do is live sound, which essentially means that I operate sound systems to make people louder at various public events. From time to time I’ll do recordings, but for the most part, I work live shows. How did you get started in the sound industry? I started learning about sound by playing in bands. In those days, there was no sound industry. Everybody was figuring it out as they went along. In college, I decided to study acoustics and electronic music, and one day it just came over…

Davis received a B.A. in Professional Writing from Carnegie Mellon University and a J.D. in Criminal Law from the University of California, Davis. What is a district attorney? What do you do? Unlike most attorneys, we don’t have any clients. A district attorney (DA) is, essentially, employed by the people of California.

Career Conversations: Brynn Evans

A Conversation with Brynn Evans What is user experience design?User experience (UX) design refers to the experiences and features that you interact with in an app or on a website. It’s more than just designing the screen or button. UX is like the superset of design; you need to understand how people think and act—how they will interact with your product—as well as visual design, layout, typography, color and animation. What do you do as a UX designer and manager at Google? I create screens for specific experiences in apps using tools like Photoshop and Sketch. UX designers can specialize…

Career Conversations: Michael Chin

I see injuries as small as ankle sprains up to things like post-op knee replacements. I work on injuries through manual therapy or therapeutic exercise. What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is anything I can do with my hands to help with pain or mobility. For example, if the knee isn’t moving very well, I can do a mobilization of the knee or kneecap. What is the therapeutic exercise component? We design a sort of “exercise…

Service and repair guys are the ones that come to your house, construction plumbers are the ones who put the pipes and bathrooms in for new houses and commercial plumbers are the ones who put pipes in for factories. What did your path look…

Career Conversations: Gina Rodriguez

A Conversation with Gina Rodriguez How did you start your career as a pediatrician? In high school, I loved both physics and biology. I had a truly hard time deciding what I should study. But because I did not want to be in a lab all the time by myself, one of my teachers recommended that I become a doctor. I was so stunned by the idea. Even my dad looked at me like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ But I was like, ‘Yup, that’s what it’ll be.’ What did your path look like after high school? After majoring in biology,…

Career Conversations: Kevin Arnold

A Conversation with Kevin Arnold What does being a full-time writer entail? The truth is that there are very few people who can make a living solely off of writing, and most people, including me, find other ways to meet basic needs. I used to work for IBM, but now that I am retired, I write all the time. How long is the typical writing process? It typically takes me about a month to write a poem, and in the process, I get feedback from writing groups. What about the publishing process? How long is that? The publishing process is much…

Using this information, I create a model which gives a rating from AAA (best) to D (worst). Based on the rating and the price, I determine…
