The Immature Grad Podcast
About This Show
Do you think what you learned sitting in a classroom prepared you enough for your professional career? While university may have provided us with the foundation to start our careers, we didn't understand or learn the value of personal branding, how to manage our finances, how to network effectively, etc. Our goal is to use this podcast to bridge this gap by engaging in conversations with other professionals with the intention of learning and helping ourselves and our listeners transition from "Immature Grads" to accomplished young professionals. www.immaturegrad.com.
