Hi Emily,

I have been listening to your podcast since it launched. Not only does your podcast give out so many essential information which students/ recent grads like me are looking for but also your information is succinct and incredibly practical.

Perhaps, something that I would love from your podcast is interviewing other hiring managers/ talent recruiters which would bring more diverse opinions on the same topic and I think you would make a great interviewer too.

Absolutely love your podcast and I have been recommending it to all my friends
