Other ways to listen

We have an amazing guest this week.  Meet Debra Olshan Cooper, a woman with 30 years of expertise in public relations and marketing, landing her clients on numerous tv shows such as Good Morning America, as the owner of FreshConnect

Debra now uses those same strategies to help recent college grads develop and pitch their own story to land amazing jobs. 

Debra has some great advice for recent college grads, such as:

“if your dreams don’t scare you, they’re not big enough” and…

“if you can connect emotionally and create and experiential feeling, you’re hired, you just are” and… 

“If you have an idea, you can craft it, architect and design it, and go for it!  Tell the world about it.  This is what employers want to see.” 

Debra believes that Gen Z has such great value, “if they only knew it.”  

We loved this podcast episode with Debra.  It is full of great career tips for recent college graduates and it is a fun interview as Debra brings an amazing level of enthusiasm and joy. 

We hope you enjoy as much as we did!
