Podcast: Career Tips & Motivational Guide To Success

I’ve been meeting so many people nowadays who have lost their jobs. It’s horrible to see this happen in this poor economy. Friends, family, you name it… it’s tough out there.

So I’ve been meaning to do a podcast where I talked about ways to find a new job or boost your career, and that’s just what I did, with a little bit of motivational stuff thrown in just to get your blood flowing. Sign up for the free recording here. I do believe you will find it inspirational.

What will you learn on this free podcast?

  • Getting a job is about selling yourself. Do you have the right pitch?
  • How to do something memorable
  • Want a better career or do you want to be an entrepreneur? You should choose
  • No more slacking. No more laying on the couch and video games, sorry
  • Examples of how I have gotten past jobs and how others have (beyond resumes)
  • How to use social networking to get a job

Your Blog Is Your Resume

resumecover-sm.jpgThese guys couldn’t be more correct. Your blog is your resume.

Your blog says everything about you. Who you are, what you like, etc… Heck, even your design template that you’ve chosen can tell something about you.

Your blog is you!

And don’t even think about using your MySpace page as your resume. MySpace is too cluttered and spammy, because that’s how MySpace is. Your personal blog shouldn’t be like that.

I haven’t built a real resume in over 10 years. Maybe longer.

Why? Because they’re stupid, and only work for entry-level jobs required by baby-boomers who are still holding on too tight.

In today’s world, I argue that a person would be MUCH more successful in landing a job with a single, clean blog page with their details on it, as opposed to some lame “career objective” resume.

Be creative. Don’t listen to teachers telling you to create boring print out resumes. Take the initiative and take the job you want.
