Evergreen helped prepare me for my professional life in the following way

As a quint-essential hippie type, my Evergreen experience did little to prepare me for business per se. However, my academic exerience taught me how to access knowledge and gave me good verbal, writing, research, and organizational skills which have definitely helped my business experience. I have been with Holland for 10 years and serve as President of Holland Pump Company
