In an all-new episode, Gigi is challenged to complete several on-the-spot tasks as she pursues a career in event planning in Nashville, which throw her off her game in an all-new episode of ABC Family’s new reality series “Job or No Job.” The one-hour unscripted reality series follows one young adult per episode on his/her journey to land a first job. Each job seeker will go on three interviews, and we will watch the intense ride to find out if he or she 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 and lifestyle expert on ABC Family’s “Job or No Job.” The series is produced by Studio Lambert/All3Media America.
