Daniel, a former Job Developer, and Brendan, an eternal dreamer, look to normalize difficult dialogues to ease the uncertainty of unemployment. They hope by sharing their own experiences around finding meaningful work, inviting experts in the field to share tips and tricks, and gathering resources, they'll create a community of support to help each other in the process of finding their next career. All this will hopefully make you feel a little more connected and a little less alone.
