Alex Withrow graduated in 2009 with a communications degree from the University of Missouri, intending to have a glamorous, jet-setting career in public relations. But after doing an internship in the field, she wasn't sure if that was the route she really wanted to take.

By chance, she heard about the university's College Advising Corps, which sends out a group of new graduates every year to high schools and community colleges across the state to work as college advisers. After listening to three advisers who were passionate about their jobs, Withrow decided to enlist.
