In this episode of 1050 Bascom, we were privileged to have the opportunity to talk to PS alumni, Katie Harbath. Katie graduated from the UW-Madison School of Journalism with an additional major in Political Science in 2003. We talked to Katie about her time on campus as well as her accomplished career trajectory from high level politics to Facebook where she served as the Public Policy Director for the last ten years. Katie shared her insights into the evolution of political media, and talked about her goals for her own DC-based company, Anchor Change. Katie also offered some amazingly thoughtful on-the-ground career advice for anyone on the internship or job market. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with Katie and learned so much.
