How this podcast got started.
My career involves talking to undergraduate students about their career goals and aspirations. In these conversations I noticed that many do not know how to get into the careers they want, don't know what careers they want, or are unsure how the job market works in general. Many are told they need to go to college, get a degree and then they get a job.
I started this podcast because I wanted to help students navigate the crazy career process. I wanted them to hear stories about the journeys people took to get into their careers. I wanted them to hear about different and excited careers they have never heard before. I want them to know that the path to a career can be straight, but it can also be full of turns and complete 180's in new directions. That sometimes it's about who you know, sometimes it's about what you know, and sometime's it's just pure circumstance.
So if you are here to find out how to get into a specific career, to find out how the job market looks in general, or just to satisfy curiosity in hearing other people's journeys (my current reason), please enjoy!
