No Better Time to Prototype

Another excellent video from the authors of Designing Your Life, Dave Evans and Bill Burnett. While COVID-19 will prevent many of our students from getting hands-on experience in a potential career field, Burnett and Evans note that there is no better time to conduct informational interviews.
