Learn a tech tool
Need a weekend project to boost your marketability?
Learn a new software tech tool. You don't need to master it.
Watch a YouTube video on it, play around, then make a 2 minute screencast showing what you know. This is a solid way to build your portfolio and signal your growth mindset.

How to read a job posting
We got a hot job opp for a sales role at Forward Kitchens. If you can hustle, this gig is for you.
Here's the job posting. They asked for a resume but you can send something better (e.g. video pitch). Really, in the "attach resume here" section you can add a doc that just lists the URL of your Crash pitch...and nothing else!
Remember how to read a job posting (2 min. blog post). Always create value up front so they can't ignore you.
You got this!
