Real Talk with PSG Alum Schuyler Miller

Bhakti Raval – March 19th, 2018
Growing up with my father in the military, I was fortunate to live in diverse communities and befriend people from different backgrounds. In each place I lived, across America and overseas, I witnessed a common thread: public servants worked tirelessly alongside communities to support individuals, families, and broader associations.
Schuyler Miller

Welcome back from spring break! Many of the Real Talk Series blogs in the past have covered specific avenues you can take to grasp the financial viability of working in the PSG field. For example, taking up an extra job at the beginning of your career to make ends meet, reaping the extra benefits that come with a government job, or be patient as you work your way up the ladder. Today, let's hear from a PSG alum who encourages students to embrace the essence of being a public servant and revel in the positive impact a public servant can have!
