Justin Nguyen is the 22-year-old CEO of GetChoGrindUp and Co-Host of the Young and D.U.M.B. (Dedicated, Up-and-coming, Motivated, Bold) Podcast. Justin’s mission is to uncover the blueprint to career success for college students, and educate them about traditional jobs (through GetChoGrindUp) and non-traditional jobs (via the Young and D.U.M.B. podcast).

On this episode, Justin talks about growing up in the United States as the son of Vietnamese refugees, the pressure he felt from his family to become either a doctor, lawyer or engineer, and how he discovered the worlds of finance, economics and business when he attended college. You’ll find out why he changed his major to Finance, turned down a dream job offer upon graduation, and became an entrepreneur instead – and how he broke the news to his parents!

Justin also shares:

  • How he grew his podcast’s reach using social media
  • Advice for making contact with influencers
  • How he taught himself marketing by researching it on the internet and watching videos of marketing experts
  • How he wants to bring change and innovation to the education system
  • A preview of the career fair that he’s hosting in 2020, where students can meet and get to know employers through engaging and interactive experiences
