How to get a job when you have no experience


No one becomes an overnight success, but when your friends are cruising up the career ladder, leaving you behind, it can feel like you might be unemployed forever.

Jennifer Romoloni knows this feeling all too well. In her new book, Weird in a World That’s Not: A Career Guide for Misfits F*ck-ups and Failures, she chronicles how she made her way from misfit to magazine editor, working at Glamour, Yahoo! and Hello Giggles; eventually becoming title Chief Content Officer at ShondaLand. Not bad for a college dropout who was waiting tables at age 27, with not much else going on.

In our latest podcast, she shares the secrets to her late-to-the-game-success, and her unconventional ways to find a job when you have no experience including:

  • How to meet people who can help you
  • Ways to turn a side hustle into a full-time gig
  • Strategies for negotiating raises and promotions as a newbie

Listen now to hear all of her great advice!
