My final entry

This is it, folks, the end of the road. I accepted, at the beginning of the week, a job! I am now a Strategic Planning Manager for NCSoft West. If you're curious about the role and responsibilities, here is a handy dandy link to the posting. I'm very excited about the opportunity. I'm the first hire in a new department - this means there's a lot of opportunity for me to make an impact straight away (which is what I was looking for) and it's pretty entrepreneurial without the risk of a start-up, again, something important to me.

I'll be in Orange County, CA. Unfortunately, there isn't an active Tepper alumni chapter in that region, or in LA. CMU, yes. For all those readers who are incoming students/current students, I'll most likely try to attend the Alumni reunion weekend that's held in March next year.

Thus concludes my blog. If you're interested about a career in Video Games or the business of the gaming industry in general, I'm looking at the possibility of blogging about that (maybe through Gamasutra), otherwise I'm always open to questions.

However, an incoming student hopefully will take up my mantle and blog about his experiences. So go follow http://tepperfection.wordpress.com/ now!

  2. Congratulations Julianne, I have been following your blog since long and enjoy reading your posts. Your writings have been a blessing to many people (like myself) who've never really visited/studied the States until actually getting through. Wish you good luck and great success ahead! :)

    PS. I like to write myself, and plan to add on a Tepper section in my personal blog as well. Thank you for the inspiration!
