Matthew Guilbault is Director of Government Affairs at Corebridge Financial – a new position for Matthew since he was last on the podcast.  Matthew walks us through his job hunting experience – I think you will find it very helpful if you are looking for a job or thinking about looking for a new job.  Some interesting facts about Matthew:

  • Matt studied to be a pilot before deciding to focus on pre-law studies at the College of St. Rose.
  • He got his first job in politics for a State Senator after networking at the restaurant he worked at in Albany.
  • After almost seven years working at the New York General Assembly, Matt transitioned to an in-house lobbying position.
