Launch a Career With You, Inc.
You’re pouring out of colleges and universities by the thousands this June, clutching your passport to the land of career opportunities. Otherwise known as a diploma, this passport by no means guarantees post-college success. So-rry! Hey, it’s a rough and tumble job market out there. And in most cases, you won’t be cruising into a choice position fueled by mere credentials and a stratospheric GPA. Nope. You’ll need to pack a little something extra when you waltz into your interview. Something that will make that hawk-eyed person behind the desk postpone all appointments and stop the presses just to hear what you have to say. And that something is VALUE.
What boosts a person’s value in the eyes of a prospective employer can vary from situation to situation. But in a world changing by the nanosecond, value usually involves the ability to adapt – quickly. We’re talking days and hours, not months. In more and more cases, you’ll need to convince an employer that you possess the creative spark to re-invent your job as the need arises. In essence, you must become the founder, CEO, and sole employee of You Inc. Just imagine the possibilities of selling stock in yourself! Wall St. would never be the same.
This eye-opening article takes a good, long look at the fine art of re-inventing your job. Dive into it with all the energy in your reservoir — the insights could mean the difference between landing a dream job and pounding the pavement until your feet ache.
