Who is the author?
Carol Eikleberry is a licensed psychologist who has worked as a career counselor for more than twenty years, both in private practice and in counseling centers at major universities. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied creativity, career development, and vocational counseling. Before becoming a psychologist, she earned a B.A. in English literature from Stanford University and then taught freshman composition for several years--so she knows from personal experience what it is like to face a competitive job market with an impractical major and then choose a new career and change direction. Dr. Eikleberry has been interviewed for newspaper and magazine articles as well as radio, internet, and television shows countless times since 1986.
