Jobstacles - From Banking To Hosting A TV Show

By Chaz Hubbard, Denise Tejada and Jenny Bolario

What's the path to that dream job? How does one job lead to another? Youth Radio finds out in our series Jobstacles.

Being on camera talking about video games was never something Adam Sessler imagined for himself. In fact, Sessler graduated from college as an English major and then worked as a banker before becoming the host of GameSpot TV and later as a co-host of the G4TV show X-Play. Sessler says, “When you’re young you kind of get the sense that what you’re doing now is what you’ll be doing for the rest of your life. But things can change.”

Find out how things changed for Sessler, and how he got out of a banking job that he didn't enjoy and into a career he loved in television.
