The Daily Job Hunt by Career Hackers

Turn Your Job Hunt into a Sales Campaign


Look, a job hunt is a chance to sell yourself.

You want to sell your soft skills, hard skills, and the potential to bring ROI to a company. You need to convince them you can create more value than you cost.

So, you could send a resume and maybe, barely convince them.... OR you could offer free samples of your work.

Build something just for them.
Do the job before you have the job.

Lean forward. Be proactive. Don't wait for permission.

Nothing Kills Dreams Like Being Normal

In this post from Bryan "Hotep Jesus" Sharpe, founder at Men of Order, you'll be reminded that to live a fulfilling, empowered life, you're going to need to stand out from the crowd.

Don't be normal. Follow your dreams.

"Separating from the pack can be a lonely journey. You may even garner resentment from the pack. You are the weirdo! Weird means not being normal. But when normal is delinquent then normal leads to destruction. Normal is anti-growth."
