What was your dream job when you were a kid? How did it change as you got older? On this episode of Pocket Money, we're putting the dream job in the interview seat and checking its resume.
We're speaking with some interesting characters to understand what makes us tick, how we can better think about our lives and our careers, and if the concept of a dream job actually exists in reality. Whether you're deciding how to choose a career or feel like you're at a dead end, this is the podcast for you.
And a very special thanks to our wonderful dreamers, Abigail, Toshan, Sriyan, Sophie, Lexi, Tim, Jai, Kara, Max and Lydia. The team at Finder wish you luck in your future careers!
