696: Plan B - With Zak Slayback
School Sucks favorite neighbor Zak Slayback returns to offer some key 2021 updates to his past advice for young people at the beginning of their careers. Our previous conversation on this topic, called How High School Students Can Get Ahead In Their Careers [PODCAST #583], covered:
- Why young people need to start personal websites while in high school, and how this website can work as a portfolio, showcase of personality, a canvas and as insurance
- How to contact an existing expert in the area you want to go into, getting a better idea of how to get started
- Methods of signaling and building a portfolio
- growing your network of people who are a few steps ahead of you
We'll make some adjustment to previous advice, and discuss what advice still stands and why. We'll also look at the big picture of politics, society, tech, and the hellstorm that's certainly on its way. Sorry.
- seriously ask yourself why you need to be on social media
- how deep are your options? how fragile is your situation?
- what consulting opportunities exist for you?
Zak is also presenting on Day One of our Ideas Into Action Summit; his presentation focuses on how you can set yourself up for success in any new learning pursuit.
Registration is still open for the UN-IVERSITY community, and full downloadable access to The Ideas Into Action Summit. You can learn more about the Discord group, presenters, topics and other details HERE.
