Mandi Woodruff of Yahoo Finance visits Grady

Mandi Woodruff (ABJ ’09), personal finance reporter for Yahoo Finance, returned to the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication Thursday, March 24th to speak to students about her career path since graduation and offer advice.

She stressed the importance of continuing to learn, building relationships during internship opportunities and maintaining a self-starter attitude during the talk, part of the lecture series at Grady sponsored by the Reynolds Center for Business Journalism.

She also talked about the experience of pitching her video series “Money Minute” and launching her podcast “Brown Ambition” without any prior experience on-camera or with audio editing. Woodruff encouraged students to build their self confidence and their personal brands and to pursue their own project and story ideas.
