Go your own way

To win on the job hunt, you can’t just follow the rules and the crowd and expect good outcomes. If you landed here, you know this.

You’re ready to go your own way.

But you don’t have to go it alone! Lots of individuals are going their own way. They’re not going the exact same way as you – hence going their own way – but the fact that they’re bucking the status quo means they share something in common with you.

Entrepreneurs with radically different companies can relate. Pro athletes from radically different sports can relate. People breaking the mold and making career moves around their unique goals and interests – instead of the jobs bored (get it? bored?) and resume sameness – can relate too.

Be different. And own it!
