How to Make Career Decisions & Place Career Bets After Uni [Podcast Interview]

How to Make Career Decisions & Place Career Bets After Uni [Podcast Interview]

Recently, I was fortunate enough to sit down and chat with Sachin and Adam, from The Sachin & Adam Show and share my journey in starting a business while at Law school and how I thought through the decision to not pursue a traditional career pathway to instead pursue entrepreneurship.

In the interview, I share:

(1) Why hybrid jobs are the fasting growing segment of roles and how building an E-shaped skills framework (instead of the traditional T-framework) is the key to career resilience, flexibility and long term success ๐Ÿค”

(2) How career choices that seek to maximise optionality (e.g. consulting, banking, law) cap your upside and lead to ongoing deferral of decision making ๐Ÿคฏ

(3) The distinction between job risk and career risk, and how to think about your career through placing career bets ๐Ÿƒ

(4)  Why I didnโ€™t apply for any clerkships in the final year of my law degree and instead started a business ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

(5) How to make career decisions when you graduate university, why the industry you’re in matters most for growth, and the impact of your first manager on your career ๐Ÿ’ช
