7 Steps to Creating Your Ideal Career After College

Pete Leibman is the founder of Dream Job Academy, an online program devoted to helping young professionals follow their passions, fully tap their talents, and find a meaningful job with growth potential—the job they really want. In addition to his work as a career-building trainer, he inspires thousands of young professionals each year as a popular keynote speaker. He has spoken to audiences as large as 4,000+, and has shared his career advice at some of the world's best colleges, including Stanford University and Johns Hopkins University.

Dubbed the “the Michael Jordan of job searching” by Jerry Murphy, Vice President, National Basketball Association, Leibman landed his first dream job—working in marketing for a pro sports franchise—right out of college. In April 2003, as a senior getting ready to graduate from Johns Hopkins, he attended a career workshop for local students, hosted by the Baltimore chapter of the American Marketing Association. He signed up for the event with one objective: to introduce himself to a featured speaker, a senior executive from Fila named Howe Burch, and ask for his advice on breaking into the sports marketing industry. Leibman achieved that goal and another: to be the first student to follow up with Mr. Burch, who had been approached by many students that day. Through networking with Burch and his contacts, Leibman learned of an opening in marketing with the NBA’s Washington Wizards. Four weeks later, he started his dream job. Less than two years later, at the age of 23, he was promoted to the ranks of management. He then went on to be the franchise’s top salesperson for 3 straight seasons. While there, Leibman created The Washington Wizards’ Sports Careers Day, an innovative career program attended by thousands of people since 2004. That successful venture planted the seeds for his second dream career: starting his own business in career-training for soon-to-be and recent college grads.

Pete Leibman grew up in Garden City, New York. He lives in Arlington, Virginia.
