Three months ago, I called Katie with a half baked plan to change the way we thought about the job search process, to ask for help from the people with the most immediate knowledge, and to share our findings with you. Today, I am excited to give you exclusive access to the first episode of the podcast!
My friend Katie and I are no strangers to crazy ideas, and when I pitched the idea for Get This Girl a Job to her, she was ready to go.
We met the summer before our senior year of high school when she lived down the hall in the dorm for the summer program in Boston where we were doing scientific research in university labs. We’ve always been future focused, sharing our successes, failures, and lessons throughout the last three years.
As we looked forward to our post-grad plans, we found we had more questions than answers, and that looking around, almost everyone we knew had the same ones. More importantly, we couldn’t find answers to most of them.
The idea behind Get This Girl a Job was to talk to the women who had just been through the process, recent college graduates, about their experience in the hopes that they could help us answer our own questions. In turn, sharing their answers could help college students like us find their own answers, and provide a platform for them to directly ask questions.

Episode 1: Matchmaking and Blogging in 2018
In the first episode of Get This Girl a Job, I had the chance to interview Emily Polner, from No Repeats or Hesitations.
Emily left New York City to attend the University of Chicago in 2013. In her first year, she started a fashion blog, and then held internships in marketing and nonprofits before graduating in 2017. She recently joined a boutique matchmaking firm in Manhattan that allows her to use her sociology and computer science skills to help people find love. She shares her advice for being bold while finding her internships, and staying positive and energetic through the job search.
I am so excited to give you exclusive access to Emily’s episode before the podcast goes live to the public in a couple weeks.
