If you Ask Why all the time, you will be rewarded.
Why am I in this career?
Why am I contacting this person?
Why am I interested in this company?
Why am working a job I hate?
Why am I bothering with a resume?
Why am I reading the DJH?
Why am I here on planet Earth?
Asking Why = Living Consciously.
Living Consciously = Living The Good Life.
Pitch a Company When They’re NOT Hiring
You might have a better career if you focus on the awesome companies that aren’t even posting a job opening.
Think about it – there won’t be any competition – no hundreds of candidates to go up against!
Plus, you can target you dream company or person to work for – like Charlie Hoehn did, pitching Tim Ferriss.
So….where to find awesome companies??
Start with Crunchbase, and find companies that recently raised a round of funding. That signals to you that they are growing.
