We’re kicking off 2021 on Career Crashers by diving into a series focused on how working in service industry can help you learn the soft skills to thrive in a startup.
When you’re at the cash register, you have to be interacting. So, through that, I learned how to carry a conversation, which was a big thing, because especially at a coffee shop, your main goal is to turn one-time-customers into regulars.
Kasen Wysong shares his experience working at a cafe and how it helped him develop soft skills that still serve him in his marketing role at Vicinity Capital.
“As much as you don’t want to be a cog in the machine, most companies don’t want that either. They want someone who’s got ideas and character.”
Joel and Kasen also talk about how Kasen ran his job hunt earlier in 2020 and how he found a great opportunity using Crash.
Here are some quick links to the show:
P.S. Don’t forget to give the show five stars (or six)! 😉
