The “Stuff” They Did’t Teach You About Finding A Fulfilling Career

The “Stuff” They Did’t Teach You About Finding A Fulfilling Career

One of my favorite postings involves a picture of Albert Einstein with the caption “I didnt say half the stuff people said I did.” Whether he said it or not someone wisely observed that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.

I’ve spent close to 40 years hiring people and unfortunately on more that one occasion having to fire people. Most of those people weren’t fired because they’d broken any rules, laws or policies. Most of them were terminated because they weren’t a good “fit” for the job to begin with. They only interest the job had was a wage and the wise sages and gurus of this world tell us money is a motivator for us for a maximum of 24 months. After that we cant get any deep spiritual meaning out of stocking shelves at 3:00 AM in the Big Box discount stores.

Oh, we follow the conventional wisdom on “how to find and attain meaningful employment.” The only really meaningful employment is the the employment that’s meaningful to you.

It seems like everyone around you is coming up with these uber jobs that create a real sense of fulfillment  and permanence and you are left scratching your head and posting resumes everywhere in heaven and earth hoping against hope that someone calls you.

And they don’t (I know, i know I began a sentence with a preposition.)

The reason? You don’t know what they know and they are not about to teach you.

Because you have chosen to be part of the amazing Time to Play community and because you want balance success and happiness in your life it means you believe you deserve success in your life, I am going to share 40 years of sitting on the “other side of the table.”  I’m going to share some tips and techniques that will help you get an edge.

Here is the good news: I’m not going to ramble on and on. I’m going to share a series of videos with you that I’ve recorded on YouTube about creating effective resumes, personal branding and preparing killer, knock em’ dead interviewing skills.

They are not the stuff we teach you, they are simply the stuff we use to choose people for those fulfilling and meaningful jobs.

The first video is on creating a killer resume – One that will get you interviews. The link is below:

I hope you find some value
