Many careers aren’t linear these days, and so the Best of Both Worlds podcast has been exploring and celebrating these twists and turns! A few weeks ago I interviewed software engineer Curran Shiefelbein about returning to work after a break. Today’s episode features Sarah interviewing Dr. Joan Dunlop about her non-traditional medical career path.
Dunlop, a pediatric allergist/immunologist at Johns Hopkins, worked very limited hours as she had three children after finishing her pediatric residency. Then, nine years later, she decided to return for pediatric subspecialty training — something most people do immediately after their residency ends. She talks about how that worked and how she makes things work today.
We end with a great success story from a listener. Here’s big cheers for better (higher-paying!) and *more* flexible jobs. We truly can have the best of both worlds. We’d love to share more listener wins, so please send those in! And as always, we appreciate a rating/review wherever you listen to podcasts.
