Janet White

Janet WhiteCareer Counselor
College of Letters & Science


How did you get here?
My career path has taken me from corporate accounting in Minneapolis, to teaching business communications and career planning in Tokyo, to providing career counseling at nonprofit organizations in San Francisco, to my job here at Cal. I'm a living example of how a career path can grow and change as you grow and change.

What's cool about your job?
I'm always learning - about the people I help, the things they are interested in, and the world of work.

What's the best career advice anyone has given you?
Actually, it's a well-known quote that works well for career and everything in life: "Don't believe everything you think."

Cats and more cats. Painting, birds, wildlife and wild places, road trips, politics, Mexico!
