My best career advice

I published a longer article on LinkedIn here for people contemplating career/job changes. Here’s the 20-second version:

DECIDE WHAT YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO DO by considering 1) what problems you enjoy and excel at solving, 2) what kind of people you want to work with.  Don’t base either on how you think people view you because of your resume. History is not destiny.

Decide on and be able to articulate your dream job. Write your own job description then MAKE IT A PROJECT to research and network.

CREATE OR UPDATE A LINKED-IN PROFILE to catapult the odds that you’re “found”, using appropriate keywords, technologies and skills.

To get hired by a specific company follow this immediately actionable advice (search “Derek Sivers how to get hired”) or click here.
