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

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 and 20-year old's 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 do not produce job offers. Justin recommends something else, something much easier, to add to LinkedIn that really opens the doors of career opportunity.Justin is the founder of GetChoGrindUp, a movement to help students navigate their way through college.  He is also the host of an iTunes top 100 podcast, Declassified College Podcast (on Apple).
