Adam Roof, attending the Vermont Career Networking Night.
Political Science major and class of ’11.
City Councilor for the City of Burlington.

Tell us about your job and how you got there.

After years of studying public policy and working on political campaigns, in 2015 I ran for the Burlington City Council seat that represents much of the UVM campus and many surrounding campus neighborhoods. I work to build and support forward-thinking public policy that addresses housing quality and affordability, job creation, public health and public safety, and positive town-gown relationships.

What advice do you have for students starting in their careers?

Define happiness and success for yourself and chase goals that are fulfilling. Commit to doing things on your terms, because others will tell you to wait your turn.
