Ever think about starting your own company? What about just working for a start-up? Maybe you can get in on the ground floor of the next Google. Be sure you are ready.
If you listen to podcasts, especially anything from NPR, you have probably heard of StartUp. Alex Blumberg, formerly a part of This American Life and Planet Money, has decided to leave NPR, start his own business and make a podcast about starting that business. I found episode one great not just because I love the way Alex tells stories, but because of the bearing I felt it had on my life. Though I am not starting a business, I did recently decide to leave my job and start a new career. The series of exchanges on this excerpt is the kind of conversation that every job seeker needs to get into their head before they start talking to a potential employer.
I highly recommend the full podcast and the entire series which you can find at hearstartup.com.
