About Jonathan Fors

Jonathan Fors is a marketer for a med tech startup. He didn’t have much luck finding a job after college, but eventually found his dream job with a company that allowed him to work remotely.

In This Episode…

In this episode, Jonathan and I talked about his digital nomad journey, how he found his current job, staying motivated when job hunting, and much more.

Key Takeaways

  • Jonathan applied to dozens of jobs before finally landing one with a medical company that he felt good about. The process was exhausting but ultimately worth it. He’s now grateful to have a job that helps people and makes him feel good about himself.
  • You’re going to spend a lot of time looking for remote jobs and applying to them until you find the right fit. Just keep working at it and putting in the effort and you’ll be successful.
  • University education isn’t always the best way to learn specific skills. Learning by doing is often more effective, especially in rapidly changing fields like marketing. You can develop useful skills from any kind of learning experience, not just university.
