Corporate Or Startup - Which Is For You?
Welcome to Episode Sixty Nine (Season Four) of the Executive Career Jump Podcast with your host, Andrew MacAskill!
This week’s podcast features James Mitra, a fellow LinkedIn Top Voice for Careers.
James is the Founder of JBM, an award-winning executive search firm working with some of the fastest-growing Tech Startups & Scale-ups in the world.
He also hosts one of the UK’s most popular business and career podcasts ‘40 Minute Mentor’ which has had hundreds of thousands of downloads to date and features inspiring career stories and mentorship from world-class business leaders, entrepreneurs, and sporting legends.
We have turned the tables on him this week! In this episode, we talk to James about how he got to where he is today from a background with two parents who were Preachers, how he fell into recruitment, and how he ultimately built a business that aligns with his values.
There is also lots of discussion around what it looks like moving from the corporate world to the world of startups, mobilising your network, and why it’s so important to bring your energy to an interview.
Lots of golden nuggets in this episode whether you’re a job-seeker, leader in transition, or a business owner. Enjoy!
