Epic Human Podcast
Breaking into Startups, with Ruben Harris
January 13, 2020
Ruben Harris is CEO at Career Karma, a marketplace connecting job training programs and qualified applicants. Ruben is also a Co-Host of the Breaking into Startups podcast, the podcast featuring inspiring stories of people who broke into tech from non-traditional backgrounds
In this episode, Ruben and I discuss the future of education and how to address that massive skills gap that exists both in the US and around the world.
We also go deep into Ruben's incredible past, starting with his passion for music as an accomplished cellist, how he transitioned to finance, and then the miraculous way he hustled his way into technology and Silicon Valley.
Ruben is incredibly humble and honest as he shares his mistakes, successes, and tangible advice for others finding their own way.
One poignant quote from our chat:
“Inbound is what happens when outbound is your DNA”
