MBA CSEA 2021: Career and Employer Relations Podcasts – Benefits and Costs

I had the pleasure and honor to share my experience with starting and running a career oriented podcast for MBA candidates with attendees of the MBA CSEA Global Conference on June 24th, 2021. You can download the PDF of the slide deck above. Read the session description below.

You listen to podcasts, your students listen to podcasts, everybody is listening to podcasts! But should you create a podcast for your career center? In this session, we will explore this question and others like: how do you get started? What are the metrics you should track? How much time and what other resources are required? Will students actually listen? Who should my guests be? Come and hear from career services podcasters and get your questions answered.

During the session, I asked attendees to share podcast recommendations, here they are in no particular order, and not they are not all about MBA Careers.
