    Enjoyed the interview with Joe. It was good to hear what a hiring manager might be looking for in an ID job candidate. I am a classroom teacher with a Masters in Instructional Technology who is trying to transition into instructional design/elearning. I now have a starting point for how I can better craft my product, “Me” I look forward to more podcast
