In this episode Andrew interviews Daniel Golliher about going from a small town to Harvard, and then they discuss his path from there after graduating in 2014.

  1. What was it like to be admitted to Harvard, and why do you think you were admitted (every decision is different)?
  2. What was it like to graduate without an immediate job offer, and how did you handle it?
  3. Your career path has involved a lot of jumping around–why is that, and is it a good or bad thing?
  4. Takeaway points:
    • Pursing a more independent path in the job market requires a high tolerance for risk and self-discipline.
    • Pursue passion projects outside of your regular job; they can be beneficial, even if not in dollars.
    • Cultivate the self-awareness and trust necessary to move on from jobs and possible futures you don’t really want, but that would be convenient/prestigious/a source of exogenous praise.
