Austin Belcak is the founder of Cultivated Culture, a company that teaches people unconventional strategies to land jobs they love without applying online. Cultivated Culture features informative blog posts, free job search tools, as well as The Dream Job System podcast. Previously, Austin worked for Microsoft as the director of partner development and Cultivated Culture was his side hustle.  Austin’s firsthand experience as an unsuccessful online job applicant who’d applied for 250-300 jobs with no luck was the inspiration behind Cultivated Culture.  After graduating from Wake Forest University with a degree in Biology, Austin accepted his first job sight unseen and hated it. At night he taught himself about digital marketing and search engine optimization and used that knowledge to pivot into the marketing field.
