    Ep.262 "How to own your career during changing timess"

    Entering a job market after a pandemic and during a potential recession is scary.

    And as a recent grad, getting a job is just the start of your concerns.

    What comes after that, the decisions you take, the chances you get and the challenges you overcome set the foundation of your career and will determine your long-term professional journey.

    Sounds stressing, right?

    That’s why I invited Karen Hebert-Maccaro, GM at Education Morning Brew, an expert in modern professional development and networking.

    She’s had experience from all the possible viewpoints on the matter, as talent management executive, chief learning officer, chief content officer, executive coach, business school professor and dean as well as a management consultant.

    We delved into everything you need to know as a recent grad entering the workforce during uncertain and new times like these, including:


    Pros and cons of remote work.
    Navigating the job market during a recession.
    Building a professional narrative.
    Work-Life balance.

    Ep.261 "How the recruitment process works"

    Ep.261 "How the recruitment process works"

    As a job seeker, sometimes you don’t know what is going on behind the curtain.

    Who finds you as a candidate, how they review your application, why they’re interviewing you, why you might get rejected…

    Not knowing these things puts you in disadvantage, and it’s key to understand the process to succeed at it.

    To talk about all of this, I invited today Marie Benigno Ablaza (also known as the Fairy Job Mother), who is currently a Talent Recruiter at Netflix Game Studio, so you can learn everything you need to know once you start planning to apply to any job position, including:


    Differences in Recruiting Roles: Sourcers, Recruiters, and Coordinators
    The relationship and dynamics between the Hiring Manager and the Recruiter.
    How to make the interviewing process easier and smoother.

    Ep.260 "How I got a job at Microsoft"

    I am happy to announce that Fatemah got an offer from Microsoft. 

    But before that happened, she was rejected by Snap Inc., Google, Amazon, and many more. Her journey was not easy. 

    It was a journey full of ups and a lot of downs, as it is for most students. 

    She was intimidated by networking, dealt with imposter syndrome and felt her technical skills were not good enough. 

    But she never gave up. 

    She knew that if she controlled the controllable, all the hard work would pay off. And it did. 

    Take 20 min to listen to this episode and learn how she did it, so you can land your dream job, just as she did!
