Welcome to How I Got My Job, a internet radio program (podcast) that presents job-hunting success stories in an interview format.
Maybe you’re currently out of work, underemployed, or are simply looking for some guidance on how you can improve your situation. Chances are you’ve struggled with losing hope. You may even be depressed. I know I have been.
That is why one of my favorite topics/labels on my Get That Job! blog has been success stories. These stories have encouraged and inspired me to have a fresh outlook and have even given hope when it has been lost.
In 2008 I began aggressively looking for more success stories to share with others. To that end, I have launched a new project entitled “How I Got My Job“, in which I record 20 minute phone interviews where my guests share how they got one of their jobs and release them to the internet as apodcast. Think of it as Inside the Actor’s Studio, but for job searching instead of acting.
Here’s the basic premise: If you are currently employed or have ever been employed, you have been successful in getting a job. Just as there are certain common threads to each job hunting success story, there are bound to be some unique aspects as well. I look forward to capturing both kinds.
I will most probably record the calls via one of the live conferencing tools that are available and will give out the phone number and other information prior to the set time and date of the interviews. Because the guest will share about one job only, each episode will last about 20 minutes. If it looks like this idea creates an audience, I may look at doing a live show where I take calls. Let’s cross that bridge when we come to it, as they say.
I hope that these interviews will encourage and inspire those who may have lost hope or need a fresh outlook. Maybe something heard during one of these interviews will help someone else in their own search.
So, what do you say? I know you’ve got some stories. Please email me so we can set up a time for one of your interviews: success [at] howigotmyjob [dot] com
I (and many others) look forward to hearing from you.
