Show Your Hidden Talents
If you want to get hired, be holistic in how you show value. Meaning, if you have a hobby of say, riding horses, or doing Jiu Jitsu, then why not showcase that?
Seriously, if you’re a Jiu Jitsu black belt, that sends a POWERFUL message about who you are as a person and professional.
An easy way to boost that message to the marketplace is to write a blog post like “6 Lessons I’ve Learned Doing Jiu Jitsu.”
Include that in your portfolio/pitch!
