How to Make a Career Change ft. Jeff Johnson – PB89


Jeff Johnson has been seen covering red carpets and press junkets for various outlets including NBC News and The YBF. Jeff also hosts the “NonStopCulture Show.” A podcast and YouTube show discussing the latest in pop culture and digital media. He is also an on-air host FanBros and correspondent and producer for Bleacher Report. RTs are not endorsements but the views and waves are (allegedly) his. We brought Jeff on the show to tells us how he transitioned from content corporate guy into his dream job. Here’s what he told us:

  • Tailoring your resume(s) for the job you want not the job you have
  • The career building advice he offers anyone looking to transition into another field even if they are not getting direct experience at their present job
  • How proactive career planning ensured he was ready to answer when his dream job called even though he wasn’t positive when that opportunity would finally knock
  • A couple corporate horror stories that many of us can unfortunately relate to when he knew it was time to move on to another career
  • Why when you work a 9-to-5 you love it doesn’t feel like work, proving that time really does fly if and when you’re having fun
