Claire Broido Johnson

President and Founder, CBJ Energy

"I think my undergraduate education was incredibly helpful in preparing me for my current position. I have worked in the energy and environment space since I graduated from Harvard undergrad.  I started in the non-profit and government sector, then realized that I could make the most impact in business and the environment. I worked with electric utilities then went back to HBS. After HBS, I co-founded a company called SunEdison.   
I think the most important advice that I can offer incoming or current ESPP students is 1) talk to as many people as you can about different career options as the environmental field is so interdisciplinary and there is no ONE perfect track, and 2) work really hard at everything you do; gather as many tools in your toolbox so you are prepared for any situation."
