For this issue, we’re having a guest columnist with an update about his life post-college! Kyle Battle writes in: “If you had asked me three months before graduation what I’d be doing in six years, you couldn’t have paid me to believe I’d be building out databases for organizations. After the NFL lockout severely changed my plans of landing a front office job somewhere, I ended up in Orlando, Florida, working for a sales training company run by the father of fellow ’11 Jacky Nikić.
“There I was introduced to Salesforce, which ended up being the bulk of my career thus far. Now, as an independent Salesforce consultant in Los Angeles, I work closely with a handful of nonprofits to help them leverage the platform’s advantages without the cost.
“What I would have guessed I would have been doing is writing, actually using my creative writing degree. On that front, in April 2016 I was invited by Mike Lewis to join the When to Jump community as a blogger detailing the various risks in my professional journey, but I’ve spent most of my time lately making a documentary called Night and Day: The Life of Anthony Hollie and Lovell Love.
“When I’m not writing or Salesforcing, I’m finding ways to better perform as the internship chair of the Dartmouth Club of Los Angeles. So if you have an internship or an open room that an intern could use, I’m the guy who needs to know. Hit me up!”
If you’d like to write a guest column in the future, feel free to send something my way!
