I love this!
Katherine Whitehorn said it best – “the best careers advice to give to the young is ‘Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it’”.
That’s why I devoted a special section in my book Out of Bad Comes Good – The Advantages of Disadvantages to career changing techniques that are really different and really work.
For example: a one-sheet that you can provide an employer on an interview that will move your resume to the top of pile.
A resume is no longer enough to remain competitive.
Providing a list of ways you can specifically help the company that you want to work for helps your potential employer connect the dots.
Some companies like Google use elaborate interviewing techniques to winnow down to the person they want to hire.
But no employer can resist an applicant who takes the time to spell out specific ways they can help that company from day one.
If you’d like to read the chapter on Career Chaos for free – and two other preview chapters as well – click here. It has the details on how to prepare the list and use it in an interview setting.
