About the Episode

The what's what...

The Great Resignation has hit higher ed with full force. Once a month for the next few months, we’ll feature individuals who have left higher ed to work in a higher ed adjacent role (think a marketing agency, edtech company, or consultancy). 

In Chapter 1 we feature Carrie Barnett  — a content marketer at SimpsonScarborough who recently left her job at California Lutheran University as the Director of Advancement Marketing and Digital Philanthropy.
