Stacy Armijo is a first-generation college graduate who did five internships while earning her degree in public relations. She was in the last of those internships – the one for which she was earning required credit to graduate at the end of the semester – when 9/11 happened. The Austin-area economy was already fragile, and after that national tragedy, it got far worse. In short, Stacy spent her college years watching those just a few years ahead of her enter a roaring economy, choosing among multiple exciting job opportunities with high salaries, and she was on the cusp of joining them when the bottom fell out… and today, she’s grateful.
Find out why, almost 20 years later, Stacy Armijo counts her entry into the worst job market the region had seen in decades as a stroke of luck that shaped her career in profound and positive ways.
