Where was this when I graduated college?!

When looking for a new job or trying to figure out “what to do with my life”, job descriptions and titles are the least helpful things! All fluff, no reality! This podcast is so helpful in getting past the surface level and into the day to day of specific careers so students, young professionals, or just anyone looking for a new role can better understand if a job could be the right fit for them. What an incredible resource!
