Episode Info

Episode Info:

Nina Coutinho is a Toronto native currently working as a Senior Product Manager at Shopify. Nina's path was anything but linear after graduating from Cornell in 2008 and she wants recent grads to know that they don't need to know exactly what they want to do right out of college.

Hear Nina's fascinating conversation with host Yasmin Alameddine '16 as they talk about Nina's meandering path, how she was a "serial joiner" at Cornell, the number of careers she's had since graduation, how her first Cornell experience was getting ready for a wedding in the crypt of Sage Chapel, and much more. 

“If you are a naturally curious person, you can find interesting things in so many different industries. I think you shouldn’t be afraid of that, because as long as you are paying your bills and you are learning something and you feel like you’re expanding your mind and you’re challenging yourself, I’d say don’t be afraid of taking a total risk on a totally new field.” - Nina Coutinho
