In this episode of the podcast I interview the founder and CEO of UPKEY, Amir Badr. UPKEY gives you a winning resume, builds your professional brand, and connects you with top companies offering internships and jobs.
We had a very good discussion about what makes someone a really good candidate. We talk about the different characteristics that help make someone a good candidate such as GRIT.
We also talk about how most companies recruit from the same handful of Universities. The fact is that students who don’t attend these universities are less likely to get noticed by top tier companies.
This episode is jam-packed with great information. So make sure you listen to it on your favorite podcast app or watch the interview on Youtube.
