Podcast #82: Your Career is a Chess Game

Happy Monday, adultescents! Jess and Laura start today’s episode with a conversation about working out and the unexpected benefits of doing it a lot (as in, being able to eat a lot more!).

The bulk of the episode is all about strategizing your career moves. Once you put in a few years of grunt work at the bottom of the totem pole, decisions about when to change jobs and how to position your skills get…more complicated.

Jess and Laura talk through how to play your career cards right. They give some examples from their own career paths, and talk through how they’ve made choices about job moves in the past.
Your Career is a Chess Game

You’ll walk away from this episode feeling empowered to look at the big picture of your career and think through which move you should make next.

The adulting moments this week include a reminder to continue learning after college and a bullet journaling tip/recommendation.
