Meet our guest

Name: Cassie Spencer

What they do: Cassie is a professional Career Coach and hosts the acclaimed podcast Happenstance. Through her show, she investigates how we can craft our ideal careers out of both the planned and unplanned moments that occur in our lives. She demonstrates how luck, effort and the unexpected can all contribute to the unique paths we take in pursuit of our goals.

Fun fact: Prior to embarking on a career in coaching, Cassie was unaware that it could be a full-time job. Fortunately, after several years of working with career coaches in her universities, she realised that it could be her ideal job and decided to graduate with a goal of seriously pursuing career coaching.

Where to reach them:


My best advice to students is to understand that anything you do, whether it be in university, through volunteer work, clubs, organisations, a part-time job, or a hobby, is giving you valuable skills and experience. Make sure to recognize these skills and strengths and use them to your advantage. This is a great starting point for a successful future.

People today often switch careers multiple times over the course of their lifetime. Whether they are in the first five years of their career after college or in the twilight of their careers after 40 years, many people are successfully making these career transitions and thriving in their new roles.
