I was lucky enough to learn very early in my career that it’s all about positioning! I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now; but you cannot live in denial and still expect stellar results. As I grew in my career I realized the truth behind this advice I got and why it is important to pay heed to how you position yourself, especially when seeking new opportunities. Your positioning starts with your resume and cover letter and continues through the hiring process till you get that offer letter in hand. New positioning starts from the day you start your new job.
Here’s some good (free) advice from Emily Heaslip on how to make your job description stand out and also how to prepare for one way interview over video. Remember, a beach background with a margarita in hand does not make you look cool 🙂
