27. “How to” Episode into Ag with Pete Dola
In this episode we interview one of our co-hosts, Pete. We try a new format that we want to implement every couple episodes. It’s going to be a “How to” episode on what a path into a particular industry looks like. We understand everyone's journey is different but this should give an idea for our younger listeners on where to start or the type of experience needed for that role. We got into what Pete wanted to do when he was younger and how that evolved over time through college. We touch base on Pete's past internships and how networking led to where he is today. One of the biggest takeaways is do not be afraid to leave a certain industry for more experience. Experience creates wisdom, wisdom creates wealth.

25. How Do You Look On Paper? - Dr. Dustin Bass
In this episode, I interview one of my past college professors on tips to building a great resume. Dr. Dustin Bass talks about formatting, filler, fluff, and the whole nine yards of what it takes to have a standout resume. We discuss how resumes are a necessary evil because they only get you the interview, not the job. Dustin goes over how resumes can be tricky because it’s not an exact science and largely depends on the person reading them. One takeaway tip is to keep a master resume with the list of all of your current and past experiences. Then for each job application take from those experiences what best fits the job description and duties. Be specific and use metrics when talking about experience and accomplishments. It was awesome getting to catch up with Dustin and learning about how to get your resume selling you in the best way.
