    Tesla: Sarah Budriunas (Part 1 of 2)

    Tesla: Sarah Budriunas (Part 1 of 2)

    Sarah has worked for Tesla for 3.5 years and specifically focuses her efforts on workforce development & the skilled trades. Growing up, the messaging was always: go to school, get accepted into a 4-year college, get your degree, and there will be a fantastic job waiting for you. Upon exiting college as the Great Recession was wrapping up, this was no longer the case and led to a rude awakening. Sarah had multiple industry changes that eventually led to her Tesla. Today's conversation talks about this journey, her career moves, and how failure isn't always a bad thing. Show notes @ https://vyten.us/high-sarah
