Dr. Trish Holliday (Class 26), Assistant Commissioner and State Chief Learning Officer at the Tennessee Department of Human Resources, is the featured “Women of Influence” in the July 5 issue of Nashville Business Journal. Awarded in the Inspiration/Mentor category earlier this year, Trish offers the following career advice about the benefits of directly asking for “responsibility, higher position and/or a raise,” by saying “I learned quickly that not advocating for myself made me dependent on someone else always having to champion me,” And the value of networking: “Sometimes I think we are so busy with juggling personal lives with family along with career responsibilities, our schedules seem too tight [and] we rob ourselves of the opportunities that building a large network of relationships can offer.” If you have a digital subscription, you can read Trish’s responses here, including what she learned from her first job, that she still uses today.
