When we were little and someone asked what we wanted to be when we grew up, we were often encouraged to give answers something like doctor, teacher or veterinarian. As we got older, we started to learn about more specific jobs and jobs we thought our skills and interests would fit well. Even as we learned more about ourselves and potential careers, it was to rare graduate with the same major with which we entered college. It was even more rare to have locked down our dream job in a field related to our major after graduation. Joel Penhorwood broke all of those stereotypes when he graduated from Ohio State last fall.

Joel took an interest in radio and journalism in high school and started his own podcast. Soon after, the local radio station took notice and Joel started working with them and gaining experience. After seeking advice from several mentors, Joel entered Ohio State majoring in agricultural communication with the very specific goal of becoming a farm broadcaster. After four years of courses and internships Joel graduated and immediately started his career as a farm broadcaster and journalist for Ohio's County Journal and Ohio Ag Net.

Listen to this episode to hear about Joel’s journey to his dream job and his advice for students as they go back to school this fall.
