Landing A Job as a First Generation With Jonathan Javier
Show Notes

As a child to immigrant parents, I know what it’s like to be a first generation college graduate and job seeker - it’s not easy. So that’s why I’m excited to bring on the Founder of Wonsulting, Jonathan Javier, to the Social Work Insider Podcast. You’ve probably seen him before on LinkedIn or Tiktok but what I love about Jonathan is that he’s a first generation job seeker who was able to overcome many hurdles of his own in order to land his dream jobs at Google, Snapchat, and Cisco. 

During this episode, Jonathan shared a lot of valuable golden nuggets including:

  • Figuring out ways to navigate the job market and building connections when you don’t know anyone
  • How Jonathan landed his dream job at Google, Snapchat, Cisco
  • The proper way to ask for a referral into a job without coming off as too pushy 
  • And more!

Here’s what you should know about Jonathan:

Jonathan Javier is the CEO/Founder of Wonsulting, whose mission is to “turn underdogs into winners”. He's also worked in Operations at Snap, Google, and Cisco coming from a non-target school/non-traditional background.
