(March 6, 2019) Leo Goldman applied for over 150 jobs before finding the right fit. After he graduates from Bowling Green University in Ohio this Spring, he is heading to Helena, MT to join ABC/Fox Montana as a sports reporter.
“It’s an awesome first job to have, a great location, and a perfect stepping stone job,” Goldman grins.
150 represents only the number of jobs for which Goldman estimates he applied. “If email inquiries count too, then nearly 300,” he smiles.
Goldman has kept busy while at BGSU. In addition to hosting a SportsCenter-style highlights show and doing TV and radio sideline reporting, he hosted a radio sports talk show and called some baseball play-by-play.
Goldman joined STAA in May of 2018. He learned of the KFBB opening through an STAA job leads email. “Multiple peers and mentors told me about STAA,” he recalls. “It was my first job site to get on. At first I wasn’t sure because of the price but it’s worth every penny! Jon Chelesnik is incredibly helpful and the job lead emails that are received come in way before any other site,” Goldman says.
Goldman’s advice to other college seniors entering the job market is to be patient and stay encouraged. “A job will come! Just keep sending emails and keep applying and something good will come your way,” he says.
