IN-GAME HOST, PITTSBURGH PIRATES
FINDING & LANDING YOUR DREAM JOB
ABOUT THE VIDEO
Understanding the extra challenge schools are facing these days to keep students engaged virtually and in the classroom, Joe has packaged his well-received live presentation into an inspiring 40-minute video that gives teens new hope and moves them to act. This is not your run-of-the-mill virtual presentation. In choosing to record his message, Joe was able to put on his "movie producer" hat and include dozens of photos, videos and audio clips that make his journey to the big leagues come to life and effectively drive home his key point that any dream job is possible IF you begin taking small steps today to get you closer to that dream. The video also clearly shows the benefits of work ethic, how to overcome adversity and why soft skills, especially kindness, are so important on any career path. A preview of the full presentation is available for free by request of school administrators (use form below).
