Episode 57: College “Cheat Codes” and How Gen-Z Can Leverage LinkedIn with Justin Nguyen

Other ways to listen

WARNING: This is not your parent’s career advice. This is Gen Z-er Justin Nguyen’s careers-for-peers approach that has 18, 19, 20 year olds binge-listening his podcast and contributing crowdsourced, real-time data for young job hunters.

He leads from experience. After college-age Justin sent out a fruitless pile of internship applications, he discovered, over a dish of ice cream, that the real path to Fortune 500 internships is networking.  Then he landed three of them. 

While prestigious internships look amazing on a LinkedIn profile, sleepy data points alone don’t produce job offers. Justin recommends something else, something much easier, to add to LinkedIn that really opens the doors of career opportunity.
