Would you buy a $50,000 product without testing it out first?
Well, if you're looking for a job paying $50,000, remember, you are the product.
So why would a company want to hire you without proof of your value?
Give them some free samples! Share a portfolio, a custom project, and or offer to work for free for 7 days.
This is the secret to crushing and crashing your career.
Fun fact: I (Joel) am currently using Skillshare to learn about Facebook Ads. Because well, I'm always learning!
What are you learning?
Go gain new skills in a quick 1 hour course, then blog about it and attach it to a video profile (like Silas made).
Ideas of courses to take:
- Google Analytics
- UX design
- Playing the guitar (hey I'm also about to start that course!)
Career growth is all about showing your value and your willingness to learn! (Forget resumes).
