How Did I Get Here?

How Did I Get Here?

By Jason Fisch
A deep dive into our journey to find the dream job!

My name is Jason Fisch. I am an engineering student at Rowan University in New Jersey. How did I get here? is my podcast where I interview executives and business professionals with awesome jobs and potentially unconventional career paths.

As a college student, I have noticed that many of my peers may know what their interests are, but not what they want to do as a career. Additionally, many college students and young professionals are not aware of all the awesome jobs available to them!
