In this episode, my guest helps you to break through the mindset that’s keeping you from pursuing a new career. But before we get into the interview, let me mention a couple of other important topics.
PNC Podcast Milestone
First, this post represents a minor podcast milestone – Episode Number 10. As I reflect on these first 10 episodes, I want to thank you for joining me. You’re the reason I’ve created this podcast. I’m still learning, and I hope that I’m meeting your needs.
One thing I try to do is bring resources that you’ll find helpful on your journey to a new career. One of the resources I might not have formally mentioned before is the Facebook Group dedicated to physicians like you. It’s called Physician Nonclinical Career Hunters. It’s moderated by Laura McKain, a physician very well acquainted with the transition to a nonclinical career. I strongly encourage you to join the conversation there if you want to learn more about career options.
I bring it up here, in part, because I sometimes ask the members of the group for advice about this podcast. I’ve recently received feedback that the majority of potential listeners prefer episodes that are 20 to 30 minutes in length. A few of my prior episodes were close to, or exceeded, an hour.
So, I’m going to make a concerted effort to keep my episodes shorter. That’s one reason I broke up the discussion of LinkedIn into two parts.
Since my goal is to meet your needs, I’m sincere when I say that I welcome feedback, so please let me know how I can better serve you.
Other Podcasts by Physicians
Before I get to today’s interview, I want to provide one more bit of potentially useful information. Since you’re listening, you probably like podcasts about physicians trying new things, including new careers. So, I’m going to tell you about other podcasts by physicians for physicians today and in coming weeks. I think you’ll be inspired and entertained by them.
This week’s selection for a formal review is Docs Outside the Box, by Nii Darko.
I’ve been listening to Nii since early 2017. When I found his podcast, he had already posted a dozen or so episodes, so I “binged” and caught up. Now I listen to each to new episode as its released.
