Jared Mayfield

Name: Jared Mayfield

Age: 38

City of residence: Victoria

Current title: Deputy director of developmental services for the city of Victoria

First job: My first job was with the city of Galveston in 1996.

What it taught me: I learned pretty quickly that there was a lot that I didn't learn in college, like the terminology. Book knowledge isn't everything. I also learned a lot about office politics with that job.
