Welcome to Reed Switchboard. We missed you.

Reedies never fail to amaze me. This post kick started a new connection at Nike (thanks Joe!) and I've received awesome advice from Jeremy ’12 and overwhelming community support. I'm excited to share that I will be working at Nike headquarters with an incredible team, one of whom is a Reedie and longtime Nike expert. I can't wait to talk to more Reedies at Nike, and in time, give back to the community by offering advice to Reedies looking to break into the Portland tech field. Thanks Reed Switchboard! - Kaori ’15

Zoe ’11 connected me with Lindsay ’01, who took the time to give me extensive advice and to walk me through the process and possibilities of my case, as well as contacting court lawyers on my behalf. I felt super well prepared and supported and my case had the best possible outcome. Thanks! - Jeannie ’14
