Alumnus Profile: Charlie P. ('04) in Minnesota
One thing that differentiates CRM work from many other jobs is that one does not need to specialize in one area or locale; you can work in Kentucky one week and find yourself in Arizona, New York or Pennsylvania the next. Sometimes you can spend years and years with a single company and then work for only a few days or weeks with another, exploring countryside few have seen and discovering artifacts that no person has touched in thousands of years. All of the archaeologists that I have talked to agree: there is a very special feeling that comes from holding a tool or other artifact that no one has touched in thousands of years! This makes the freezing cold, blazing heat, rain, sweat and bugs worth it. I also promise that you will not find a more interesting group of coworkers; you meet people from all walks of life in CRM, and they are all fascinating. I can truthfully say Katie and I now have friends all around the world!
