During our lifetime, on average, we spend 90’000 hours, meaning 11'250 days, or 30 years working: that is one third of our life. Some of us have a clear idea of what they want to do, from the very beginning; some take a path and then change, some change all the time, some fall into a job by chance and love it; others hate their job but feel stuck and can’t move. Often dissatisfaction at work causes much pain, sadness and frustration. But have you ever spent enough time to value all your options, before you pick a career? Do you know that there are thousands of possible careers awaiting you out there?That is the goal of my podcast: you will find dozens of jobs as they are told on my mic by people like you and me, from around the world. You will be astonished by the number of jobs you would have never thought existed. I hope this will help you make the right choice in life, I hope it will give you inspiration when you are undecided of your career path, and courage to change if you feel stuck.Enjoy and reach out to me for any comment or proposal.Sincerely,Laura LeonciniJob Tales Podcast
