Join Matt and Joy for a very inspiring and thought provoking episode of A Real Piece of Work, as they chat with Megen DiSanto, who works in global brand trust communications at McDonald’s. Megen talks about the path she took to get to where she is in the corporate sustainability world, and how many of the jobs she previously held she felt underqualified for. She talks about the importance of having confidence in trying new career paths and how your attitude toward a position can often be much more impactful than what’s on your resume. The Junior Achievement student question comes from Ella at Bettendorf High School who asks Megen her tips on Marketing.
