This week’s podcast episode covers the second most popular answer to the question, “What is the problem you are struggling with most in regard to this career?”
To recap, a couple of months ago, I put this post on social media asking for people in wildlife biology, ecology, or zoology careers to help me out with some research:
I got so many people who were interested in helping me out (thank you!).
Episode #68 covers the most common answer, and in this episode I talk dive deep into the second biggest problem: A lack of insight on careers.

This is something I am SUPER passionate about because this also happened to me (for more on this check out this blog post).
Over and over again, I heard college graduates say that their professors did not prepare them for or talked about actually careers in wildlife biology, ecology, zoology, and conservation biology.
In this episode, we’ll cover:
- All of the different variations of this answer and what they mean/imply
- Summaries of statements from the research on how graduates felt about their college experience
- What to do if you are feeling this way
- Tips on how to deal with too many options
- A tangible answer to the question, “what can I do to make myself attractive/competitive to employers?”
- and MORE
