Episode 47: Best/Worst/First Job Stories with Career News

This episode features “Best/Worst/First Job” listener stories for the fourth week of the month, a standing feature of the show.

I also share a few career news headlines, including about supervisor and employee views of remote work, rate of older worker retirements during the pandemic, and more.

Eric, the show producer, and I chat about the news stories and those from our listeners. The worst job story is working in an ice cream shop; the first job story is as an employee at an animal shelter; the best job story is about being a web designer. As usual, the show ends with the “Reignition Recommendation” for the week.
