It’s still January, which means technically I’m trending if I talk about goal setting.

Are you achieving yours? Goals that is?

I’m not really a goal-setter per se, as much as I strive to be an accomplish-er.

And, I guess now that I’ve written that previous sentence and am too lazy to go back and change it, I’ll just correct it here...

I have never arrived as much as I am always “on arrival.”

I don’t really accomplish, as much as I enjoy.

The joy is in the doing I like to say.

Sure, I touchdown from time to time. Some might misconstrue my pitstops as accomplishments.

But I strive to live in a state of progression.

Nothing is ever the destination.

Even so, if you’re interested in my tactics to climb the ladder of life, just like most things these days, it’s a click away…

Today, I’m decoding job descriptions. If you’re wondering what that entails, that’s me doing some Andy x-ray vision and taking a run at predicting the future (interview, salary negotiation, etc.) simply by seeing a job description.

I can even go backwards with what your resume should say.

I’m an all-directions kinda guy that way.

This is one of those podcasts where it might be helpful to see the visuals. If you’re interested, it’s also here on my YouTube Channel!

Today, we’re talking how to prove your value to employers.

Easiest way to do that is to show them how you can help them achieve their goals.

Good news for you is I’m old and wise and have lots of employer tread on my tires.

Serving it up today.

Lemme ask ya.

Is there anything more confusing than job titles when it comes to job searching and your career planning?

I think not.

Have you ever wondered…

Do job titles matter? Does anyone care?

How do I explain my title when no one outside my company knows what system engineer III means? Should I apply for lower-level titles to increase my chances of getting a job?

Can I apply to higher level jobs when I’m qualified but my title doesn’t indicate that?

Uh. Wait. Do I need to explain to future job interviewers that I had more responsibility in this manager role than my previous director role?

Coverage and answers to all this in today’s podcast…
