This episode is all about the trials and tribulations that come when you enter back into the job search world. Both hosts recently decided to make a career shift and today we share our stories with you. Whatever your case may be: whether your current role isn’t a good fit, you want to pivot in your career, or you feel you aren’t challenged in your current role, the first step is putting yourself out there.
