Start Anew

Our economic state has forced some to begin new careers whether they want to or not, but a new startup allows those who want to dip a toe in another industry to do just that. LifeSwap, started by a team of Stanford business students and developers, gives the job-curious a chance to shadow a professional for a few hours, illuminating what might be on the other side. Yoga instructors, bakers, software developers, and PR executives will show you what its like to live in their shoes for a day.
