It's Not Hard to Land a Job

With tech layoffs and economic recession, it makes sense if part of you is concerned, afraid, or worried about your employment status.

And underneath that concern could be the belief "it's hard to get a job," or "it's hard to get hired in this economy."

Can you question that belief?

It may be true for many people, but they aren't aware of the Daily Job Hunt approach to land a job!

When you, say, send a custom project straight to a company (e.g. "I went ahead and made this landing page for you!"),  you WOW companies, and you actually start landing interviews fast.

(When I was pitching companies during the hiring freezes of spring 2020, I was still landing interviews 60% of the time).

You got this. Be bold!

Create a Talent Profile

Show, don't tell! A resume is boring sentences. A talent profile can link to actual, documented projects you've done, to PROVE your ability to create value.

Here's one Waris made. He used Notion to build it. But you could also just make a page on a simple website.

What are you waiting for? Start your ASAP. Just get going and make progress daily. You'll be done in a week or two. :)
