My name is Chris Kochan, host of the Careers Over Coffee podcast.

If you want to learn more about me, please check out my About page or my LinkedIn profile (please connect with me on there!), but…

…we are here to talk about you, your story, your insights, and what you have to offer our young audience!

Thank you for your interest in being on the podcast!

The Careers Over Coffee podcast was created to help as many college students and young professionals ease the weird, awkward transition from the freedom in college to starting their career, starting their side hustle, and taking a business full-time.

By joining me on an episode, you will be sharing your expertise, tips, strategies, and information that can help our next generation directly impacts their lives. For this I thank you in advance from me for helping us along on this journey and from all of the listeners who I know will appreciate your insights and information.

With that said, let’s dive into some logistics to get us recording.

By the way… if you have any questions at all, please feel free to get in touch with me!

Below are 5 steps to get your oriented with the podcast, handle some logistical items, and easily get our recording call scheduled.

Step 1) Podcast Overview

This step is REQUIRED.

What is this?

The Podcast Overview runs through an overview of the podcast, the target market, current demographics, and what to expect from me, during the recording discussion, and the episode we record.

What to do?

Please click the button to download the Podcast Overview document. Review it and if it all looks good to you, head down to Step 2!

Step 2) Podcast Release Form

This step is REQUIRED.

What is this?

The Podcast Release Form allows me and my team to use your audio and promote it through our various channels. This provides information to you about where the podcast will be distributed, how it will be promoted, and acknowledges our use and rights to promote the audio we record during the episode.

What to do?

Please download, review, complete and sign the Podcast Release Form. Then, upload a copy of your completed and signed Podcast Release Form.

Special Note:

Any scheduled call that does not have this form emailed to us 48 hours prior to the scheduled recording call will be canceled by our team and a new time will need to be scheduled. This is really the only strict rule/requirement, as we need this release form on file prior to recording to have right to use, publish, distribute, and promote the podcast we record together.

Step 3) Podcast Info Questionnaire

This step is REQUIRED.

Please complete this podcast information questionnaire so we have everything for our discussion ready. Every item with a ” * ” is required to be filled out. Also, please make sure to read the special notes under a few of the fields.

We want podcasts to provide upfront value to listeners. With that said, if you have a product, service, or company you would like to promote to the audience in exchange for your time and value provided, please note it here and we'll cover this near the end of the podcast (unless otherwise brought up by Chris). Near the end of the podcast, Chris will initiate the discussion on this product/service/company, at which time you will be able to explain and tell where consumers can get access to this product, service, or company.
If you are looking to promote a product/service/company, please paste the link to the specific item you want to discuss in the podcast. We will provide listeners this link in the show notes. If you have an affiliate program, please email chris@chriskochan.com with the information to sign up for this program, as affiliate income helps to support this podcast.

Step 4) Schedule Our Recording Call

This step is REQUIRED.

What is this?

Now, it’s time to schedule our recording call. By now, you should have at least:

  1. Downloaded and reviewed the Podcast Overview
  2. Downloaded and reviewed Podcast Release Form

What to do?

Complete the form to schedule our recording call. Begin by clicking “Schedule a Podcast Skype Call” and select your date/time. This will schedule a 60 minute block of time for us to chat. Make sure to include your Skype contact details when going through the scheduling process to ensure I know where to call! Also, select if you want me to do a video & audio call, or just audio. No pressure – either way works!

Special Note:

Just a reminder, if you haven’t signed and uploaded the Podcast Release Form already – please make sure to come back to this page and upload the signed form in the spot do so in Step 2 at least 48 hours prior to our scheduled call.


Step 5) Submit Marketing Images

This step is REQUIRED.

What is this?

As mentioned in the Podcast Overview, the episode will be promoted through various podcast channels and social media, including through emails. To do this well, we need images from you!

What to do?

Please upload images that you want us to use for marketing the episode in this form.

  • Make sure the file name contains your name!
  • Please limit the amount of uploads to a maximum of 4 images:
    • At least one (1) headshot photo of you (required)
    • A full image of you (optional)
    • Up to 2 images of your product/service/brand (books, courses, logo, etc.)

Special Note:

Per the Podcast Release Form, you are agreeing to the Careers Over Coffee podcast, Chris Kochan, and his team to use these images under the terms set forth by that release form.

All Done? Then, You Are All Set!

Before our scheduled discussion, look out for an email from me with a confirmation and few other details about our specific podcast.

Please make sure to add me to your contacts, to ensure the email comes through:

I look forward to working with you to help out young professionals, while also connecting you and what you have to offer to more people.
