The second episode of the Get This Girl a Job podcast is finally here! My name is Katie Melbourne, and Rosana and I created this podcast to help answer your questions about transitioning from college to the professional world by demystifying the post-graduation job search.
We interview recent college graduates to talk about the steps they took to get their first job in different industries. The questions follow the development of their career from their first year of college, to how their field of study changed, to the internships they had over the summer, to how they got hired for their very first job! We take turns conducting interviews, and every third week, we co-host a mini-episode answering questions from the audience.
Political Advocacy in 2018
I had the pleasure of interviewing Chrissy Houle for today’s episode of Get This Girl a Job.
Chrissy graduated from Yale in 2016 and is now working in communications in Washington, D.C. She is active in politics, spending her senior year working on the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign between finishing up her classes.
She has lots of good tips on searching for professional opportunities, adapting your plans after unexpected changes, and making your voice heard through political advocacy.
A huge thank you to Chrissy Houle for sharing her story, and to Stephanie Dorris for designing our logo.
