The Cool Jobs Podcast is a service of the Career Center at UNC Asheville and explores some of the most interesting jobs around, with the hope you'll find some inspiration for your own career!
We publish every other Thursday during the academic year, and we hope you'll join us for each conversation!
Saying goodbye, for now.
My position has changed recently, and that means I have to walk away from The Cool Jobs Podcast for now. I won't say I'm walking away forever, but just for now. I'd love it if I could pick the podcast back up at some point in the future, and look forward to restarting the conversation with each of you then.
Thank you to everyone who has given this podcast a try, to all my guests, and those who were regular listeners. I wish you the very best.
