As you'll hear in this episode, much of what I know today are things I had to figure out for myself. I was fortunate to be raised by a hard working mother who gave me the work ethic I have today. I didn't have all the answers and that's why I do this! I want to help those of you that were in the same position I was when I was in college. I hope you all gain value from this episode and please let me know if I can ever help! Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/masteringcollegetocareer/message

Introduction

Welcome to Mastering College: A Guide to Landing Your Dream Job! My name is Daniel Botero and I'm so glad that you have joined me on this journey to help you create your ideal future. This podcast is going to focus on helping college students learn all the different skills they need to master college and land their dream job.

I was fortunate to meet great people along the way who helped me get to where I am, but I know that is not the case for everyone. I look forward to helping you on your journey to mastering college and landing your dream job! Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/masteringcollegetocareer/message
