I'm Jenn Swanson and this is my podcast called Careers by Jenn (formerly The Communication Diva Podcast.)

I started podcasting as a hobby in 2012 on the broad topic of communication. At the time, I was teaching Human Relation Skills to college students in the healthcare field, and realized that what used to be "common sense" is not really all that common anymore, because communication skills are not intentionally taught much anymore. I didn't have enough class time to cover very much in depth, and so decided I needed a platform on which to expand what I wanted to share with people. So, Communication Diva was born.

My early episodes are quite general, and then once I got to Episode 100 and beyond, I began to focus mainly on career, workplace, job search and self-improvement topics that help you to succeed in the workplace (and in life!) through great and more effective communication.

Then, right after (and before and around) episode 150, I re-branded the name and that is why you will see Careers by Jenn title and artwork from 151 onwards!

It's been a journey and a progression and it's been amazing!

This show is sometimes just me, waxing eloquent...(haha!) and more often, I interview fascinating guests from all around the globe who offer tips and actionable ways you can get the job, love your work and advance your career. Sometimes we focus on self-growth and wellness, organizational and personal improvement topics, and other times we give you step-by-step advice to get something particular done. In any case, thanks for reading this very long description! I hope you find something that resonates here and invite you to join the conversation. And if you love the show, please consider becoming a Patron of the show to help me share more valuable content with the world.
