Meet The Top Career Podcasts of 2021

Listen On:

Today, I’m excited to announce the publication of my fourth Top Career Podcast Guide!

There are so many ways to build and grow your ideal work life. But sometimes it’s hard to find the time – especially in the middle of a pandemic. Luckily, career podcasts offer a solution for professionals who want to hear new ideas.

Since starting the Find Your Dream Job career podcast in 2015, I’ve discovered a thriving community of fellow podcasters who help people build dynamic careers. These hosts produce terrific shows, focusing on tactics that help you get hired and create the career you want. 

How the Top Career Podcast Guide Began

In the vast universe of the podcast world, it takes time to find career-focused content that’s worth your time. There are scores of shows under the career section of Apple Podcasts, for example. But they’re not all going to deliver useful advice that will be helpful for your job search. 

In 2017, I decided we all needed a better way to find great career podcasts. So I created my inaugural Top Career Podcasts Guide: a single source for the best shows dedicated to helping professionals look for work and grow their careers. 

As time has gone on, I have continued to explore new podcasts to find the best shows that help people with job searching and career development. 

The Guide’s Fourth Edition – an Emphasis on Equity

Because of the pandemic, we did not publish a guide in 2020. We are returning in 2021 with our fourth annual edition.

This year also reminded us how important representation and racial equity are in the workplace. I’m pleased to share that 52 percent of this year’s featured podcast hosts are women and 40 percent are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, or people of color). 

I hope this guide will introduce you to some fantastic new podcasts that will help you take the next steps in your career. You can follow the hashtag #CareerPodcast to see new shows and episodes as they come out in the coming months. Happy listening!
