Beyond the Resumes

The leading voice for career and and life advice for the modern global professional.

Jerry Won

Founder, Podcast Host, Newsletter Editor & Community Administrator

Jerry was inspired to launch Beyond the Resumes after many conversations with college and grad students, as well as early career professionals, who shared with him their ongoing frustrations and challenges navigating the current landscape of life and career advice, much of it rooted in cultural and capitalistic expectations. Realizing the growing desire to consume such advice, Jerry launched Beyond the Resumes to bring a much needed context and culture relevant perspective on the topic through the podcast and newsletter media.

He is also the Founder & CEO of Just Like Media, a podcast-first media company dedicated to sharing Asian American stories, and The Podcast Firm, a podcast production and consulting agency.

Prior to entrepreneurship, Jerry was a strategy consultant at Accenture and sales and marketing leader at WeWork, AAA, and other leading organizations.

Jerry holds a BS from USC Marshall School of Business and an MBA from Michigan Ross School of Business and has served in leadership roles for both school’s alumni organizations. He lives in Southern California with his wife and two children.
