Anyone graduating around 2008 knew that finding a job after college would be hard with the decline of the economy. Charlie Hoehn was tired of sending his resume to hundreds of employers with no luck, so he decided to change his approach. He decided to only work on projects that truly interested him, and he would do it for free. What started as helping local businesses for free evolved to several paid opportunities. One job lead to another and soon enough he was working with other respected entrepreneurs like Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Ramit Sethi, and Chad Mureta. Charlie has since authored two books, the first called ‘Recession Proof Graduate’ that breaks down the idea of 'free work' to land your dream job, and the other book called 'Play it Away', a book on the importance of playing to reduce stress and anxiety.
