E7 Finding Your Perfect Career Match In Months, Not Years: Sebastian Little (Former Yale Football)

June 3, 2019

My guest is Sebastian Little, a former Yale football player who is now an associate with the McChrystal Group, a world-renowned leadership and performance consulting company.

Seb found his career niche FAST after college. It can take college athletes years to find careers that they enjoy. Within just a few months of leaving Yale, he had secured an entry-level role in a field he was passionate about. How'd he do it? By focusing on everything but that thing in college. Through intentionally diversifying in college, Seb identified exactly what he wanted to do after college. And it has paid off big time.

In today's episode:

  • Why sometimes, the best thing for the team is for you to be 100% you.
  • How thinking outside the typical "student-athlete" box multiplied Sebs opportunities at Yale.
  • How to turn LinkedIn contacts requests into interviews, internships and jobs.
  • How to craft compelling interview stories that get you remembered...and hired.
