In Her Own Words: Kathryn Minshew

Glance at Kathryn Minshew’s CV and you might assume she’s older than not-​​quite-​​30: her cre­den­tials rival those of any cor­po­rate big­wig, up to and includ­ing an impres­sive CEO title. A vet­eran of non-​​profit and private-​​sector busi­ness alike, founder and, yes, CEO of The Muse, a millennial-​​minded career site that pairs in-​​depth employer pro­files with spot-​​on advice, Kathryn’s already had a career’s worth of experience—and she’s just get­ting started. Now, with over three mil­lion monthly users and a hefty dose of ven­ture cap­i­tal, she’s poised to take on the site’s next big project—personalization. She is quite lit­er­ally the def­i­n­i­tion of a mover-​​and-​​shaker, which is why we fea­tured her in our Octo­ber jour­nal, an homage to women of char­ac­ter. Read on to learn what Kathryn has to say about mil­len­ni­als, men­tor­ships and trust­ing her gut.
