NY1 Employment Reporter Asa Aarons recently featured me and four recent college grads talking about job hunting while baking and decorating cupcakes. We had a great time filming the segment and talked about real issues facing today’s young job seekers.
Asa asked me how job hunting is like baking cupcakes — a question that, believe it or not, no one has ever asked. Here was my response:
“Job hunting is like baking a cupcake in that there are many steps to the process,” says Pollak. “Follow up is involved and once you finish the cupcake and you finish the job hunt, the enjoyment of the work you’ve put in – eating the cupcake or finding a job that you love – is always worth it.”
Many thanks to the job seekers/cupcake bakers you see in the segment, from left to right in the photo above: Kara Johnson, Katie DePaola, Melissa Basolo and Anna Schilawski. Email me for any of their fabulous resumes!
Huge thanks to reporter Asa Aarons and to Laura Allen of 15 Second Pitch for making the introduction.
