Length: 30 minutes

Do you remember being asked as a kid, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s a question that haunts people throughout their careers — where am I going? Well, we have good news: it’s totally okay to not know what you want to do.

In this episode, Labib Ahmad and Harrison Yeung discuss their career paths and the uncertainty that comes with them. Do you really need a definite plan for your career? Do you have to have a specific end goal in mind? Their personal experiences highlight that career uncertainty is exceedingly common, and that the real key is building career resiliency to succeed in your professional life.

Later, Labib and Harrison also discuss the importance of term-based jobs that can propel young careers forward. There are so many options to choose from, like the Explore Micro-Placements Program, which allows students to gain real-world experience without the long-term commitment.
