Liz Barkan for blogLiz Barkan '03, pictured with her daughter, is the Band Director at Fairless Local Schools and Fine Arts Department Chair. Here is #MyAlumAdvice from Liz for the Class of 2015:

What is your advice for working in a secular world?
If you live according to Jesus' teaching, it is easy to be an example for Christ - even if you can't use words. I saw a quote once that said, "Your life might be the only Bible someone reads."

What’s the best advice you could give about life after graduation?
Continue to search for God in every experience, friendly encounter, and situation. Malone may offer you a "bubble of comfort" but it also offers a pillar of strength that cannot be taken away from you.

What skill should recent grads hone?
The ability to show your skills with humility, grace, and integrity.

How did you find your first job?
Through the education department, I was placed in a great student teaching assignment. While there, I utilized Career Development to hone my resume and interview skills. By the grace of God, a position opened up at the school I was student teaching and I was able to earn the position.
