Job in the modern market – a fool’s guide to getting hired

It’s freaking hard! But you need to approach it with kahones to have any chance of getting A job let alone THE job you aspire to.

  • First, if you are desparate, beggars can’t be choosy. Change your approach to anywhere not just your neighborhood.
  • Second, I’m sure you have a lot of stuff you couldn’t include in a two page resume. Invest in a personal website where you guide potential employers to your good stuff. If you are really serious about your career, $100 for hosting plus your own time setting up and maintaining is a deal. Excuses are for losers. From experience
  • Third, your network will take note of your social media updates but will not recommended you just for the sake of it out of the goodness of their hearts. Follow up with your network at a personal level and tell them where you are at. Ask for favours not handouts! But to be able to ask for handouts you need to know the “secret to building a professional network who gives a shit about you!

Hope this helps. Good luck!
