Recent Grad Turns Job Search Into a Career
PSFK talks to Willy Franzen of onedayonejob.com.
As anyone currently seeking a job can tell you, it’s a rough market out there. Perhaps no one is more acutely aware of this than recent grads, who left college after four years with diploma in hand expecting an entry level job and left with the daunting prospect of cold calls, message boards, and months to years of unpaid internships. Instead of letting this get him down, Cornell grad Willy Franzen decided to share his job searching methods with other potential employees and employers by launching onedayonejob.com – a daily blog and newsletter highlighting desirable (and often hiring) companies and how to best apply for a position. PSFK recently asked the young entrepreneur five questions about what drove this endeavor, as well as his advice for other daring job seekers.
