Who are the 15 people you would call if you got laid off today? By digging the ditches and building relationships before you need them (check out his 6-minute networking course) you can maintain and reignite dormant connections to create what is essentially an insurance policy for your career.
Other highlights from the episode:
- Handling debt after graduation
- Zooming out on the timeline of your career and why patience is key in the long-term
- Nothing you do is ever wasted. Even if you’re working as a barista at Starbucks, you are building skills that can be applied in other areas later on
- Why the phrase “Burn the Boats” is misleading and unnecessary
- Feeling “unemployable” because you have taken a non-traditional path
