Career Crossroads

Career Crossroads

Getting to where you want to be in your career is not always as linear as we might think. Not everyone picks one career path and sticks to it for the rest of their lives, and lots of people are confused about what they want out of their career. On Career Crossroads, host Jonathan Collaton explores the stories of everyday people who have made pivots along their career journey. Starting with the question 'what did you want to be when you grew up?", they discuss all the jobs they have had, the people that influenced them, and both the expected and unexpected decisions that led them to their present career. They reflect on how sometimes we have these 'crossroads' moments where we must pick one thing over another, and they dig into the reasons why those decisions were made. The episodes are about the guests and their career stories.
