A fun talk designed for university students. I share with students how I ended up on the other side of the world and how it changed my life.
"Jake engaged our students with life lessons and stories from his travel and work abroad. His presentation of the material was accessible to the audience and connected with threads of humor and wisdom. Most importantly, Jake inspired and challenged our students to consider post-commencement employment options which, mayhap, had previously not occurred to them. It is this pragmatic, yet adventurous approach, of which students should be thoughtful."
