    What is Entry-Level Anyway?

    What is Entry-Level Anyway?

    Let’s set a baseline definition for what an entry-level, Instructional Design job looks like. Once we’ve established that, then we can manage our expectations for what it means to start new in the field, and what it takes to advance. Then, we will talk about why a job might ask for 2-3 years experience for an entry-level ID job. Then I’ll wrap things up with how to determine if you’re ready for an entry-level role or something else. Because really, it’s up to you to make that decision.

    Be well! I hope you are drinking water and getting the rest you deserve.

    Episode 11 - The Art of Receiving Feedback

    Episode 11 - The Art of Receiving Feedback

    Hey there new IDs. I have a confession. It’s getting increasingly difficult to produce and create these episodes. It’s not because of time, or resources. It’s because the world is on fire and it’s getting to me. I’m giving myself some grace this week and repurposing some content that originally aired on my youtube channel. As I mentioned last week, I’ll be wrapping up the first season of the podcast soon - most likely in the next two episodes. I’m already planning season two, so don’t worry - I’ll be back.

    Episode 10 - The Interview, Pt. 2 | I'm New Here: A Podcast for New Instructional Designers

    Episode 10 - The Interview, Pt. 2 | I'm New Here: A Podcast for New Instructional Designers

    A couple episodes ago, I gave you three tips for approaching your Instructional Design Interview: To craft your instructional design philosophy to help you answer the question “tell me about yourself”; Using the STAR method to provide context for your behavioral interview responses, and to quantify your experience using data to back up your accomplishments. If you haven’t listened yet, you’ll definitely want to go back and stream that episode to catch you up to this one. Because this episode is a follow-up to Episode 9. 

    This episode focuses on one particular aspect of the interview process - when the interviewer turns the reigns over to you and asks “So do you have any questions for us?”

    Episode 9 - The Interview | I'm New Here: A Podcast for New Instructional Designers

    This week I'm going to talk about the instructional design job search, and how to prepare for interviews including how to leverage your network and other connections. These tips are based on interviews from people who hire instructional designers and from interviewing for design positions myself.

Practical and Useful

This podcast provided me so many useful tools. Nyla helped me to understand how to transition from higher education/nonprofit ID to other industries.

So Authentic

I loved listening as it was so easy to listen to, relate to and enjoy. Such good information for this newbie who is transitioning. Thank you for being yourself. Can’t wait for the next season.

First Impression

I loved the short format and really appreciated the story-telling medium. This episode was personal and edifying. I’m not a new ID, but still learned a bit more about managing constraints. I will continue to lean in on this podcast.
