From Music to Youth Advocacy, with Help from Career Center
Julia Feil Zimmerman

Julia Feil Zimmerman was a musician with a degree from the University of California-Irvine when she changed career paths and enrolled in Webster's international relations program at the Vienna campus.

Now she's a women and youth empowerment advocate at the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens, in part thanks to guidance from the Webster Vienna's Career Development Center, services she encourages all Webster students to utilize.

"My multifaceted background may have made me a stronger candidate for the position" as a program and organizational associate, she explains. "Versatility has been key to my new position at the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens."

"Being prepared is key, so I encourage those hoping to land a job or internship to take full advantage of the Career Development Center," she said.
