Burbank, CA (May 14, 2015) – Production began this week in Chicago for the new ABC Family reality series “Job or No Job,” an aspiring, one-hour reality show about young adults going out on interviews for their dream job. The show premieres Wednesday, August 5th at 8:00pm ET/PT.
They’ve studied for years, interned for free and got themselves through school. Now it’s time to find a job. From the Emmy Award-winning producers of “Undercover Boss” comes “Job or No Job,” an unprecedented look at the job market facing today’s young adults. Each episode will follow one highly qualified applicant on an intense ride as they interview for three extremely coveted positions at different companies in the industry of their choice. They’ll also have to figure out the best way to get around the city, what their housing options might be, the places to eat, shop and hang out and more.
Jane Buckingham (Founder and CEO of Trendera and bestselling author of “The Modern Girl’s Guide to Life”) will be on as the career expert to help guide and prepare them for each of the interviews. After all three interviews are completed, emotions will reach a boiling point as they wait to hear back from the companies: How many job offers will our applicant get? Will they get an offer from the company they really want? What if they gets no offers at all? Whatever the result, viewers will be left educated, inspired and riveted by this incredible journey on the first step to adulthood. The show will film all across the country, including Los Angeles, Nashville, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Dallas, Portland, Lubbock and Kansas City.
