Ask a Badger

Listen to alumnus and former Google employee, Joshua Steinberg, talk about what a normal day at his job was like!

My liberal arts education has taught me the importance of communication and understanding different perspectives, which I've been able to apply to my internship experiences. As an intern at the Madison Public Library Foundation, it's important to be able to work well with the team and ask questions as you further develop your skills and discover your passions.
