Find Your Dream Job with Mac Pritchard


Mac Pritchard is the founder of Mac’s List, a Pacific Northwest job board driven by a simple idea: the hiring process should be more human. Mac’s goal is to break down the barriers between employers and job seekers, so that everybody can win.

As you can imagine, I’m totally on board with that idea, especially as it is tougher for older job seekers and career reinventors to find their pathway forward in this volatile economy.

Mac created Mac’s List in 2001 and he still runs the business today. It all started after Mac started emailing job openings to a few dozen friends and colleagues. He wanted to keep in touch and share great work opportunities with his network.

In our conversation, we talk about the “Ikigai” or finding your dream job, and answering my favorite four questions to help people focus on their strengths and practical, marketable value in the career marketplace.
