Take for instance astronaut. Although it offered some nice antidotes, I still don't know what its like to be an astronaut.
From the interview:
> What was your biggest roadblock to becoming an astronaut, and how did you overcome it? ...Being able to be brave enough to actually apply. Too many people are too shy or afraid of failure. If there's something you want to do you just have to go for it.
That's a bit of a non-answer. It's like asking someone how they ran a 100 mile ultra-marathon, and they said "one step at a time!". I'd be more interested in the qualifications and skills they're looking for? What age are astronauts and where do they recruit from? How much time do you spend in space or otherwise away from your family. Are all the jobs clustered in one geographical location?
Also, I think you should make the About section feel a bit more personal. You linked to your personal twitter elsewhere but not in this page.
Also, I know two astronauts relatively well and they say the same thing when the topic has come up. One took a non traditional approach to being an astronaut, applying many times over years, but still had a hard science advanced degree. It's literally a requirement in the application.
To my chagrin, I will never be an astronaut.
Where there is a will, sometimes there is a way.
So i guess maybe some programs like this will appear in the future...
You can see this running on the below:
This is a rebranding of content farmed from Reddit, which we've seen all over the clickbait journalism world...
Going forward, I'm going to aim to have all interviews be sourced by myself. Thanks for checking out the site :)
Do you consider to add geographic information? The same job can be quite different in different locations; work conditions and laws differ a lot.
I understand that in the beginning that might segment the website too much.
that's the next step - Quarantine has given me more time to invest in this idea so I'm going to be amping up the quality of these interviews.
- A list of industry-specific terminology used in the interview at the top. I was unfamiliar with the concept of financial modeling, would have been nice to have a quick definition from the interviewee's own words.
- The ability for readers to ask followup questions (without the guarantee that they be answered) and/or a way to contact the interviewee directly in an anonymous way (definitely way beyond MVP, but it's fun to think about)
