Braden Jefferson, a masters student at the University of Southern California and Milken Institute intern at the time of our interview, talks with us about the importance of internships and experiential learning at the Milken Global Conference 2019.

“I know for Public Relations and for myself, I learn more hands-on than in the classroom,” he tells us.

Update: Braden has since graduated from USC with a Master of Arts degree and is working as a Public Relations Associate at Venture PR in Los Angeles, according to his LinkedIn profile.

WorkingNation was on the ground at Milken Global Conference 2019 where some of the most powerful people in business, government, healthcare, and entertainment have gathered to discuss and debate how the world is being disrupted by economic and social change and what to do about it. The goal of the talk at the conference is how to drive shared prosperity.

While there, we documented all things future of work on Twitter at #WorkingNationOverheard and in interviews at our pop-up studio (watch our playlist below).
