Scoop: JOB OR NO JOB on ABC FAMILY - Wednesday, August 19, 2015

Gigi is challenged to complete several on-the-spot tasks, which throw her off her game in an all-new episode of ABC Family’s new reality series “Job or No Job,” airing Wednesday, August 19 at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
“Job or No Job” follows one young adult per episode on his/her journey to land a first job in their chosen career. Each candidate will go on three interviews, and viewers will follow along to find out if s/he lands three, two, one – or zero offers. Jane Buckingham (Founder and CEO of Trendera and bestselling author of The Modern Girls Guide to Life) will be the Career & Lifestyle expert (a.k.a. The “Fairy Jobmother”), dispensing advice on how to learn from their mistakes, where to shop and eat, how to get around town, where to find housing, and the realities of entering the job market.

Gigi McDowell, an aspiring event planner, leaves her friends and family behind in Dallas to fly out to Nashville to interview with three successful companies in her field. In her first interview with Nathaniel Beaver, Co-Owner of HYPERLINK "" Infinity, Gigi is put to the test when she’s asked to pick five varieties of scotch and whiskey and an interesting fact about each of them—in five minutes.

Later, she interviews with Randi Lesnick, Founder of HYPERLINK "" Randi Events and is tasked with putting a wedding together on the spot.

Finally, she meets with Angela Proffitt, Owner of HYPERLINK "" Angela Proffitt Events, who interviews her for an eight week internship—unpaid.

Jane, touched by GiGi’s story of losing her mother at a young age and getting into Event Planning to follow in her footsteps, encourages GiGi along the way to keep her chin up and let her voice be heard.

“Job or No Job” is produced by Studio Lambert/All3Media America. Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Greg Goldman and Sara Quick serve as executive producers.
