TaJ? 008. Debby (Krusz) Kruszewski's Adventure: Corporate Operations, Dream Pollinator

podcast Apr 25, 2022

In this episode, from a dream of being a dancer, Debby's life then moved forward to business school.  

She found that business operations was the path for her, and spent many years working the late shift for a printing company.  She knew that life didn't sit right for her, but she thought that a role in management will make her more engaged, even after getting a master's degree. But her work experience didn't get any better, especially when you have to cut budgets and cut workers loose.

 
But she found a way out of that world when she started listening to her body when it said something didn't feel right. Then she found her purpose as a Dream Pollinator, helping people actually discover the dreams that help people feel the way they should day in and day out.

career adventure podcast Apr 05, 2022
 
In this episode, we learn the pathway of a former NCAA College Basketball player to a world he never thought he would cross after sports.

We connected back a few years ago when he found the world of employment recruitment after discovering that personal training (exercise science major) and a call center job in the insurance industry were not for him.
 
Adam will tell you that communication and being a proactive "go-getter" are what employers are looking for in today's job market.  He will give you tips in this episode on how to show that in an interview.
