This episode I chatted with Bradlie Nabours about how he got into the field of evaluation and his experience applying for evaluation jobs. He also talks about his evaluation experience and provides great tips on applying for jobs in the evaluation space.
Job search & application recommendations:
- Don’t give up. Know your worth. The job process is difficult, but don’t settle and remember it doesn’t reflect necessarily on you. Keep applying!
- Don’t limit yourself in what positions you look for. Expand your horizons.
- Network like your life depends on it! This includes having an online presence and building and leveraging connections with people in your field such as through LinkedIn, EvalYouth (LinkedIn & Twitter @evalyouth_na), and your professors!
- Be a versatile applicant. Build your resume. Seek out learning opportunities to grow as a professional. Be willing to experiment and try new things.
