“Jeopardy!” champ Amy Schneider is now flush with cash, so she essentially went all country — as in “take this job and shove it!!!”
Amy’s way too polite to say “shove it,” but she is indeed quitting her job as a software engineer. She tells us the whole “Jeopardy!” experience has been life-changing, and that includes employment.
She assumed the interactions and business discussions she was having during her run would fade away once she was dethroned. As she put it … “That turned out to be completely incorrect.”
She says the emails and meetings have made it clear … there’s more out there! She’s also enjoying the life of a newly-minted celeb.
Amy went on to share what career avenues she’s mulling over …. writing a book and podcasting are at the top of her list. She also says she’s looking for anything educational because that clearly has served her well.
