My First Job Podcast

About the podcast:

There’s only one thing that almost all people have in common: we’ve all had our first jobs. This podcast talks to people to find out what their first job was and if it jumpstarted their career. Join the conversation by filling out the form below.


Episode 1: Michael Saks

I wanted to start the podcast off with me. Talking about my first job, my experience, what I learned, and why I think this podcast is important

Episode 2: Advice 

This episode talks about advice we’d offer ourselves when starting a first job.

Episode 3: Matt Lachs

On this week’s episode of the podcast, I welcomed my first guest to the show.  

Matt Lachs, a former Temple University Men’s Basketball manager, took time out of his busy week to have a conversation about his first job, the lessons he learned then, and how he uses those lessons today. 

Matt was a jack-of-all-trades at only 17 and he hasn’t stopped since! And if you run into Matt, wish him a hearty “mazel tov”! 

Episode 4: Jason Wand 

On this episode, I talk to Jason Wand – a New Yorker through and through.

We talk about what this pandemic has done for his current job as a lawyer, his managing of daily life with his wife and one-year-old, and the main reason why you are listening, we talk about his first job in high school.

I’ve known Jason for almost 20 years, so it’s nice always catching up with him. Does he last more than one day at this job? Listen to find out.
