Fired Before Christmas is a podcast focused on job seekers, namely the unemployed. We do weekly interviews with people looking for work or people who can help those currently seeking employment. Each interview is an opportunity for our guests to share their stories with our audience, provide insights, and encourage others as they go through their own journey. Each interview is an opportunity for our listeners to discover new talent, or learn about new ideas or tricks that people are utilizing in their job search efforts.
Our goal is to humanize the hiring experience by bringing a voice to those looking for work!
