The 99U Podcast: Job Hunting with Pamela Slim

As careers become increasingly unstable, there’s a high likelihood you’ll find yourself ready to switch jobs, companies, or industries. When that moment comes, then what?

In this episode of the 99U Podcast, we chat with Pamela Slim, author of Body of Work, where she provides us with actionable steps to figure out the new career landscape. We spoke with Slim about:

  • How do you stake out on your own when you don’t have any connections or money?
  • The step-by-step method for creating constraints for your job hunt (for when everything seems like a possibility).
  • Why focusing on more than one project or passion is a good thing.

This is an experiment on our part, so please let us know what you think in the comments or by @ replying us on Twitter

    Hi Sean, I am 63 years old and worked for Corporations most of my life and I loved listening to this! Thank you for making this interview available and including this in your “body of work”… (I also ordered Pam’s book). Reading the book and listening to this at 63 (instead of 23 or 33) will be an interesting journey.

    Is there a reason why you’re sound is so soft? I have to blast my speakers to be able to hear… :)
