Recapping this week’s DJH

Mindsets for Success

Don’t Behave

Don’t be “on your best behavior” during the interview. That’s a schooled mindset (trying to get approval from the authority).

Sure, be respectful and give 100% effort, but it’s also okay to:

-take risks
be vulnerable
-be disagreeable (while being solution oriented)
-set boundaries if you are asked a question that’s too personal for you

Yes, you want to create massive value for the company and make it about serving them! AND, know that the interview is a two-way street.

Job Hunt Nutrients

Keep a “well-balanced diet” of job hunt vitamins and nutrients:

All these ingredients work together to create the future result you want. During your job hunt, do at least 1 thing a day on each of the above!

Quote of the Week

“If you are working on something that really excites you, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.”

Pitch a Customer Success Role to Break Into Startups

70% of people dislike their jobs. Are you one of those people?

If so, what will you DO to change your situation?

Will you take real action?

You might be stalling because you think a career or job change has to be a huge shift that takes a long time.

But it doesn’t need to be that big of a deal.

Literally, you could be working a corporate job today, shoot a 30-60 second video pitch tonight, and be on your way to a new role in a week or two.

That’s how low the bar is to stand out on the job hunt.

And that’s how much power you have to pitch yourself.

If you’re stuck on “which role do I pitch?,” then, in my opinion, I’d say pitch a customer success role.

If you have people skills and listening skills, then you can pitch your way into this role even with no experience in startups, or no connections. Your skills are more transferable than you think.

Find a few potential roles on a site like BuiltIn or Dynamite Jobs, then

In your pitch, you can say how much you’re excited about that company, and then tell a quick story about your empathy and listening skills, connecting the dots as to why that matters to the company in that customer support role.

Pretty simple. You just need to do it. ; )

Remember, the fact that you send a video pitch signals your boldness and initiative, which is the most powerful of all.

Go for it!
