You can’t win a new game playing by the old rules

Time and time again, as I’m teaching classes, I hear the frustration and desperation of countless talented people who simply can’t find a job playing by the old rules of job searching.  Wallpapering the town with dozens of resumes seems to yield few, if any, actual job interviews.

It’s not that the work isn’t out there.  It’s that the old system of cattle-call resume drives based on stale job descriptions simply can’t keep up with the ever-increasing need for specialized employees.  Instead of encouraging people to stand out and really shine – the system forces people (as one of my clients so aptly describes it) to fit into uncomfortable boxes with no holes for air.

This is a system that definitely needs to be fixed.  Who can fix it?  You can!

You can find a way to stand out and shine all on your own…

You can take a stand for doing impressive work through using your talents and living up to your personal values…

You can do a great job of getting noticed…

You can do a great job of staying connected to like-minded, inspiring people…

You can Fire Your Resume…and Ignite Your Career!
