Fox News’ Shannon Bream asked about the transferability of skills from one career path to the next.
“You can transfer your transferable skill to another career path,” said Mary Ann Robinson, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley.
“In the private sector, I think the private-sector workforce is so well developed and so competitive, so there’s such a lot of opportunities for individuals to make that transition,” Robinson said.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.”
