What Are You Doing?

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
