Episode 53: Preparing for jobs that don’t yet exist, with Chris Bishop
Chris Bishop’s had 8 careers. Not jobs: careers.
His band toured with The Eagles and ZZ Top, before Chris became a session musician playing with Robert Palmer and Chuck Berry.
He then got into writing jingles – including KitKat’s first TV advert. Chris then discovered the World Wide Web, learned programming, and landed a job with IBM where he worked on Virtual Worlds.
Chris now teaches people on how to prepare for jobs that don’t yet exist through Improvising Careers, and even has a course on LinkedIn Learning.
