The first 10 years of an individual’s career can be such a pivotal time to grow as a person, find their passion in life, and establish themselves in their field. While there are some resources out there for job searches and career advice, much of that information is not targeted at young people looking for their dream job. With this project, I’ve created a podcast where I interview successful young professionals about their career path to serve as a resource for young people just starting their career.

My goal is that these interviews can be listened to and shared by recent graduates as they map out their career path and shoot for their dream job. I talk with Emmy winners, Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees, professional athletes, and award-winning architects, comedians, and entrepreneurs. These young professionals are leaders in their field and offer their perspective and advice to young people just starting out. In this paper, I lay out the blueprint I used to create this project and discuss the process of running my podcast, 10 Year Reunion.
