Show Notes

Put yourself in the position of a college student right now. You’ve been investing a ton of your time, energy, and money into an education that you assumed would lead you to gainful employment. But then a pandemic hits, and everything you assumed about the job market is being tested - big time. How worried should you be? What should you be doing right now to prepare yourself for entry into this crazy world of work? In this episode, we welcome Dr. Briana Randall, Executive Director of the Career and Internship Center at the University of Washington, in Seattle. We discuss how the pandemic has changed and how career development services are provided. We dive into the question of what students need to be doing right now, during this pandemic, and in light of all the barriers and challenges they face, to prepare to launch their careers. And, we get Briana’s take on what makes her work purposeful and what any of us can do to experience meaning in what we do all day.
