You're Not Applying for a Job
hen you apply, you're actually applying for an interview, and then you interview for a job. 

This is an important distinction to make because we often think that the only way that we're going to get to the job is if we get to the interview through the application process. 

You don't necessarily have to go through the application process to get the interview. There are a lot of dif...

Showing your personality is incredibly important.

If you try and water down who you are, what you're going to do is you're gonna end up diluting or masking all of the things that people, especially an interviewer, are looking for as a way to connect with you, as a way to get to know who you are and what type of person are you.

Because one of the things that hiring managers are always trying to do is evaluate whether or no...

The first thing a hiring manager does when they want to fill a position is look within within the company. Where's the second place they look?

They look within their network. They're going to reach out to people they personally know professionally and personally and say, "Whom do you know that may be a good fit for this job?” 

And only after that does the hiring manager then typically go to the public, which means pos...

"It's not what you know, but who you know." Right?

That used to be true, but it's not true anymore.  It doesn't matter as much who you know, but what matters is who knows you. In other words, what is really important is that we create awareness.

If They Don't Know You, It Doesn't Count
If you think you have a connection with somebody just because you know them, it doesn't necessarily mean...

Right after I finished college I was working a job in a restaurant. I was waiting tables and I was looking for that, my first professional job.

And one day I'm waiting tables at the restaurant and this gentleman strikes up a conversation with me and he is like, "Hey, you know, I really like your energy. I like your outgoing attitude. I think you might be a great fit for my company." 

And I said, "Well, what comp...

The most powerful tools that you have at your disposal (aside from your smartphone) are a handshake and a smile.

Being face to face, being able to see the whites of somebody's eyes, the expressions on their face, and the energy that somebody puts off.

When I do this workshop in person, I always show people like, "I can prove to you how a handshake and a smile is the most powerful thing that you have at your disposal."...

You are not what you eat.

You are what you like or dislike. What you do or don't do, etc. You are what you like. You are what you're interested in. You are what you're good at.

I'm just trying to reframe that that actually the phrase "you are", because the only thing that you actually are is an unique individual. 

You are not predefined. You can do whatever you want. You can learn whatever skill that in...

Almost Everyone Feels Stuck At Some Point

I can't recall anybody who hasn't felt that feeling before when you either know that you need to make a career change or you've just been laid off from your job and suddenly you have submitted a hundred resumes out around town and gotten no calls and and all you feel is just stuck in the mud and that, and then suddenly discouragement starts to creep in or despair, wondering&quo...

The worst career question to ask someone: "What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?"

The word "what" implies that you have to pick just one thing. That you have to decide, finally, for good, what you want to do as a career. Well, the truth is you don't have to decide one thing.

The next part of this question I don't like is the word "BE".  Who says that you have to "be" anyt...

"Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty" - Harvey Mackay

Your Job is Going Away. You have a 99.99% chance of changing jobs. Your job is going away. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, not this year, but jobs go away.
