I'm Kamber and I currently live in Greenville, South Carolina, working for a local non-profit that I can't say enough wonderful things about. After college, I moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where I worked in corporate America in the sexy industry known as insurance. I had a great job, was living in a wonderful city and liked my job a lot at the beginning. In fact, I was in what you might call a honeymoon phase.
Over the year I was there, I found myself seeing less daylight and more bright lights from my screen than anything else, and when my health and happiness were put at risk, I thought it was a sign that I was ready for a change.
There is a lot that goes on in our first few years in the working world, but after talking with other young professionals, it is clear that there is a lot of value that comes from these years in their entirety, not just when we leave college. I know I have deeply benefited from pouring into my peers since I left college, so my first experience in the working world really got me thinking about how there should be a platform for young professionals going through the same things.
And that is what I want this blog to be. Just a place where young professionals can share both their professional and personal stories that might give us all a new perspective. Whether you are someone looking to join the workforce soon and are curious about different fields, a young professional looking to see what your peers are up to, or someone from a more experienced generation that just wants to figure out what's going on in our millennial heads these days, this blog is a platform for everyone. I ask each young professional I interview to connect me to the next young professional, preferably from a different field and region than themselves. Not only does this blog illustrate that we can relate in some way to these young professionals; it also shows that we are all interconnected. This is the YoPro Know.
