Extremely Informative Career Advising Podcast

I completed a real estate development podcast episode (#46) with Sonali about 3 years ago! I can’t believe how quickly time flies.

It was an absolute pleasure speaking with her and I loved the opportunity to speak about my passion in real estate. I don’t like public speaking so I was very nervous at first. Sonali made me feel so comfortable and helped me to take a step back and think big picture on why I loved real estate.

Learn Educate Discover is a brilliant idea for a podcast. This podcast provides a great way for all people to learn about different careers, job paths, and industries in a safe environment. Sonali asked all the right questions and I could tell she genuinely wanted to provide insight to her listeners. Whether he/she is starting a career, changing directions, or just exploring the possibilities, this podcast is an educational and informative career advising tool for everyone. Please subscribe!!

Super useful!

I am an early career biotech professional and I find this podcast to be so useful! I love that Sonali brings in professionals from business, strategy, marketing and Product management. There are also a few guests in less talked about fields like dance therapy and comedy. It’s a great podcast for everyone and especially useful if you’re a career switcher and/or are contemplating an MBA.
Her interviewing skills are on point and the conversations are very enjoyable :)
