Remember in school when the snazzy collegiate prof handed you a syllabus? (Ha ha) Syllabi were great because you knew what to study, when to study it, and someone who actually knew what they were doing gave you the right order to study the stuff. No matter what era you were born in, whether you’re an old fogie like me or a young gun, the “syllabus of professional skills” has been the same for pretty much all time. And, it ain’t changin’ any eons soon. Problem is, I’ve never seen one, so I had to invent my own.

In the lesson, I share my very nicely organized roadmap of skills building. It’ll help you get those skills built in the right order and with compounding effect to the amazement of your soon-to-be envious co-workers, not to mention your forever-grateful customers (whoever they might be)!

We all need them…I mean if you really want to grow. Mentors. Coaches. Trainers. Gurus. Oh my. I’ve long considered having a real-life, face-to-face mentor a luxury, not a need. I still do. But, I think everyone will benefit from having online trainers and coaches. It’s never been easier in the history of history to find, follow, and learn from them.

But, what comes with this ease is also confusion. Why? There’s not just a low barrier to entry to become a “guru” or “expert,” there is literally NO barrier to entry. Got a cell phone and an Internet connection and you can label yourself “a pro!” So how do you know who’s good and who’s good for you? Simple. I break it all down for you in today’s episode! PS: I hope I pass my own test! LOL!

If you want to know what the best resume format is, you need to know how someone looks at your resume, what they're looking for, and where they're hoping to find it.

Ya know that question you get in a job interview, “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” I think it comes straight out of the employer interview manual that seems to sit and, unfortunately, not collect dust on their shelves. The overly-thick one with the title “Complete-Waste-Of-Time Questions” embroidered on the spine.

Well, I think it’s a silly job interview question, but I think it’s a darn good question in general for you to ask yourself. The part about where you actually see yourself in 5 years. For YOU!

In this episode, I’m covering how to think about this question for your own benefit, what to say when asked in a job interview, and how this applies to networking too!

There are generally two reasons people make bad decisions. Their decision-making mechanics are poor. They’re deciding without all the information or the information they have is incorrect.

Enter recruitment. Hiring. And their convoluted practices. Which basically ensure the job seeker will become helpless when it comes to the second reason. But, you now have nothing to worry about because you have me and in this episode I make sure the fight is fair by running through 12 of the biggest truths a job seeker should know about hiring!
