Roadtripper:

Hunter Brown

Purpose:

What do I hope to get out of my Road Trip? I hope I gain real knowledge of getting a feel on choosing the right career for myself. When I see "real knowledge", I mean things I don't usually learn from the classroom, but instead from successful people who share some of my same passions and interests when it comes to careers. I hope to gain some confidence in learning how they got to where they are today in a way where I feel like I can do the same.

Getting Started With Cold Calls

I have to admit, I was somewhat nervous making these "cold calls" for some reason. Although, it is good to know that is a common theme among the "Roadtrippers". I was a bit unsuccessful the first day with these calls because neither one of my two prospective interviewees were either out of the office or busy at the time of the call. The next day I tried again and accomplished setting up the interviews. The conversations went great, and neither of the two men had any problems or concerns with taking time out of their busy work schedule to conduct an interview with me. So this was a nice breathe of fresh air knowing the hardest part was out of the way, and it is now time to get my hands dirty in gaining knowledge from these successful, hardworking men. Time to get to work.
