Interview with Brittany Magouirk

Brittany was a Navy Surface Warfare officer who successfully made her transition out of the military by going to business school. Find out how she made it into the USC's Marshall School of Business and, while there, how she discovered the consulting industry to be a great match for her skills and passions from her time in service. Even if you're not thinking about going to graduate school, Brittany provides some great tips on networking, interviewing, and negotiating. Trust me when I tell you, she is one sharp vet! Her story is an inspiring example of what it takes to find and seize opportunities.
