Live Your Values

Put yourself in a position where your values align with your incentives.

Don’t get a job at an agency you think shouldn’t exist. Don’t take a contract that incentivizes overcharging if you value thrift and honesty.

If stealing violates your core values, try not to put yourself in a position where you are desperately hungry and sitting next to someone else’s unattended apple cart for hours on end.

In other words, don’t find just any job. Zero in on a few that might match who you are and what matters to you.

Tik-Tok Resumes are Catching On

What we’ve been teaching for years is catching on. Even the Wall Street Journal is covering the effectiveness of sending videos to land interviews.

“Video résumés have proliferated this year, as TikTok and LinkedIn launched special visual platforms to connect job candidates with hundreds of companies and recruiters. The style of such videos range from lighthearted and unconventional to straightforward elevator pitches to a potential boss.”

Keep up with the times. Go get creative.

Quote of the Day

“There is one quality that one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.”
