Are you making plans to leave Atlanta, or have you already left the hive? Young alumni live across the globe to pursue career opportunities and life experiences. Even if you are outside of Atlanta, there are plenty of ways to stay involved with Georgia Tech after graduating. Read about two active Yellow Jackets’ alumni experiences below:
Meghan Green, BA 13
Meghan Green moved to Charlotte, NC in June 2013 after accepting a position with Bank of America in a rotational Leadership Development Program. After her move, she attended many Georgia Tech Charlotte Alumni Network events such as happy hours and game watching parties. Before long, Meghan joined the leadership teams of various alumni networks and recently accepted the role of President for the GT Charlotte Network.
Meghan says “I have utilized the GT community in so many ways, including to network with co-workers, try out the latest new restaurant or brewery, learn about career paths in my field and even to carpool to football games.”
Olivia Hawkins, BA 13
Olivia Hawkins moved to New York, NY in February 2017 when she joined VaynerMedia at their headquarters on their Media Planning team. An Atlanta native, Olivia moved north to follow her dream of pursuing a career in advertising. She has traveled near and far to support the Yellow Jackets – including most recently at Madison Square Garden watching GT Men’s Basketball triumph over CSU Bakersfield in the NIT Semifinals. Even though she is no longer in Atlanta, Olivia continues to stay involved with the GT Young Alumni Council and has gotten involved with the New York network. Her Oxford professors would be proud to know she has become a member at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Olivia says “This career opportunity would not have been possible without my continued involvement in Georgia Tech. Even though I’m 700 miles away from campus, I am blown away when people know of GT’s reputation and am proud to continue to serve.”
