Career Advice

Writing, no matter what: Jesse HirschI am a mass communications major so writing is a huge part of what I do. I have come to love writing but writing hasn’t always been my favorite thing to do. In high school I would rather do math, science, etc. before even thinking about reading and writing. I eventually found writing as an outlet to express myself. I am a talker but writing provides a very intimate environment to share a message. I was happy that I found the love for writing that Jesse has found. Now, like Jesse, writing will be a part of my life no matter what life throws my way

Review of Stripping Away the BS: Ben Smith

I really enjoyed listening to Ben Smith share his personal career journey experience. I was able to really relate to the topic of the podcast as I am a senior majoring in mass communication with a concentration in public relations and graduating in May 2016. I am currently in the process of deciding what my next step in life will be, so it was nice to hear Smith’s advice and approach on how to tackle this milestone. I was able to really connect with Smith as I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. Smith inspired me to continue to take life day-by-day, to live in the moment and to not get so caught up in always planning and looking ahead toward the future. As I am currently in such an unpredictable stage in life, it was very refreshing to hear from Smith that it is ok to not be completely sure of your next steps in life. Like Smith, as I continue to learn and grow, I am positive I will find my way to my dream job. Furthermore, I will have enjoyed and appreciated all the steps along the way that led me to achieving my ultimate success.Overall, the content, message and length of the podcast was excellent. I also thought that the interviewer did an excellent job interviewing Smith. The interviewer asked great questions and follow up questions that made the podcast very enjoyable to listen to. I really enjoyed the podcast.

A “must” for any graduating senior anxious about the job hunt - I know I am!

I’m going to encourage all of my friends to listen, especially those preparing to graduate and embark on the looming job hunt.I think feeling trapped by your career is something millennials can relate to and fear. The workplace has drastically changed from the past generation and people are more likely to switch their job several times. The host, Gur, speaks with energy and definitely has a certain presence to him. A huge strength of the podcast is having guests that engage and resonate with millennials - in this case Ben Smith at Buzzfeed. Although at times he sounded bored, the name recognition of Buzzfeed itself and the content of what he was saying was enough for me to stay attentive. As a public relations student, it was interesting to hear about the reporting angle and how similar and different that is to the function of public relations. The most important nugget of wisdom for me is that media and PR is not done changing and will continue to change. This just further reflects a workplace that is in a state of flux, the reason many millennials do have anxiety about their career prospects.

Stripping Away the BS: Ben Smith

I listened to the first episode of the podcast, an interview with Buzzfeed’s editor-in-chief Ben Smith. I felt that, although the host asked Smith generally insightful and intelligent questions, Smith was not as engaged in the interview as one would expect. While he did provide wisdom and share some of his struggles, such as financial difficulties and indecisiveness about his career path, Smith was, overall, not the most forthcoming interviewee and seemed unprepared for most of the questions. However, lackluster interviewee aside, I appreciate the concept of the podcast as a whole. As an undergraduate student in her last semester of college who is unsure of her future career path, I find it comforting to know that others struggle with this same uncertainty, and are still able to achieve successful careers.

Inspirational advice from people who've "made it"

I think part of growing up is realizing that finding a career that fulfills you is a lot more complicated than you thought in high school. I'm 28 and still stumbling through that journey, but these stories from people who have found success are really inspiring, and help us realize that, not only is it okay to not have it all figured out, but there's a lot more to work than money.
