For example, I have a client who desperately wants to be a writer. I have read some of his work and he’s a great writer and is seeking information about how to best get published. Sorting through all the lame advertisements and fake information is zapping his energy. I am encouraging him to contact individuals who have successfully published so if you have done so and are willing to participate in an informational interview please contact me so I can pass along your information to him.
Those of you who truly know me realize how positive I always am regardless of the circumstances. I seldom voice anything negative but feel the need to warn people to carefully check credentials as they sort through all the online information. As I have “set up shop” I am in a position to really notice what others are doing and am really appalled by what I have seen. The fight for your 2 minutes of attention in lieu of the overwhelming information is just that…a fight!
Nonetheless, I feel the need even more to shine a positive light into this world. Offering insight and valid career tips is both my passion and my purpose. I come from a background of over 20 years’ of experience watching how the hiring process has evolved. I’ve worked in a variety of environments and realize that the process is different for various fields. It’s a tricky process now. As a result of the booming social media and web 2.0 technology it is becoming even harder to find the needle in the haystack. I know there are people out there who need my help so I will not give up. I will continue to shine my light into the world to help a few lost souls navigate through the darkness.
