Please welcome author and founder of Careergasm, Sarah Vermunt! As a previous guest on the show, she is back to share insights and BS free advice from her new book, Career Rookie. We start off by discussing how job-hopping in your early 20s is actually a good thing, and Sarah gives advice on how to set yourself up for success in your career. We dive into the reasons people end up feeling stuck, and how you need to take action to build confidence and move forward! And if you’re struggling with balancing money-making with the desire to do work that feels good, Sarah has you covered.


If you’re a student, graduate, career newbie, or in the process of switching careers, you don’t want to miss this conversation!
