It’s a takeover! Since Claire Hooper is taking a well-earned break from bringing you all that work and money knowledge goodness, we know you’ll have a pineapple-shaped whole in your pod catcher (and your hearts). So let us introduce you to one of the Pineapple team’s personal favourites — Bang On. And while you’re putting all the stuff you learned in the latest season of The Pineapple Project into practice, put Myf Warhurst and Zan Rowe into your earholes as they debrief on all the music, art, life and stuff you need to be across. Hang out with Myf and Zan as they BANG ON. New episodes drop every Thursday.
You’re leaning in with your growth mindset, you’re managing your workday like a pro, and you’ve said a HARD NOPE to impostor syndrome and your toxic colleagues. You’re feeling about as motivated as you can be in the job you’re doing... but what if that’s not enough? When you know, deep down, it’s time to change direction, how do you even begin? It’s time to solve the greatest puzzle of all — finding and landing a new job that’s right for you. Claire Hooper is putting it all on the line to find some answers.

“Have a baby,” they said. “It’ll be great!” they said. Ummm... except they forgot to mention how it can really put the skids on your career! Hold on to your teething rusks as Claire Hooper wrangles parents and experts like Annabel Crabb for tips on how to tell your boss you’re growing a human, manage your leave and re-enter the workplace #likeaboss even with a spew-stained shirt.
There’s a point when a cruddy boss or colleague can cross the line into #metoo territory. So if you find yourself in that situation, what can you do? Claire Hooper chats with Australia's Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins about the million ways sexual harassment can play out in the workplace — and where you can turn if it happens to you.

You never forget your first bad boss. You know the one — they take the credit, play the blame game, micromanage, criticise and undermine. Claire Hooper asks what makes a horrible boss, how to cope if you’ve got one, and what we can learn from the best ones.
There’s a certain amount of workplace stress that’s normal. Then there’s burnout. So what’s the difference? No really — Claire Hooper wants to know. If you’re feeling exhausted and cynical, or if you just can’t see the point of the work you’re doing — you could be burnt out. Recognise the warning signs and get a plan in place to vanquish the ‘noonday demon’ with Australia’s leading burnout expert, Professor Gordon Parker.
Tina Fey has it. TV journalist Leigh Sales too. That creeping feeling you’re not quite good enough at your job, and that EVERYONE is about to find out. Impostor syndrome. What a prick(ly situation).It doesn't matter how competent or how experienced you are, that nasty little voice can strike at any time. Claire Hooper’s determined to find out how to deal with it.
Bad breath. Bagging your old boss. Straight up lying. The list of what NOT to do in a job interview is long and cringeworthy. Claire Hooper finds out how to turn a bunch of stone-cold strangers into a room full of your biggest fans, clamouring to give you the job. And hear other people's worst interview fails ... to make you feel better about your own.
Networking. Yuck. If the thought of doing it triggers your gag reflex, you’re not alone.  But, done right, networking is actually less 'vomit in your mouth' and more 'hello golden job opportunities'. Claire Hooper tracks down the world’s most persistent and successful networkers to find out what they know that we don’t. And it turns out you don’t need a briefcase, heels, or even business cards to do it — some of the best networking can be done without leaving your couch groove.
