Sell Yourself Long
Hey, Mr. Interviewer, watch this. And lookit what else I can do. Hey, no fair—you weren’t looking. Are you looking now? How ‘bout now?
Whether you’re a recent college grad, changing careers or looking to moonlight, unleash your inner, pain-in-the-neck child and show off every last talent you’ve got. In today’s competitive market, you need to sell yourself from head to toe.
Even if you’ve been an accountant for thirty years, you’re selling yourself short if you limit your search (and resume) to accounting jobs. There’s more to you than meets the eye. Maybe you’re a research guru, a software master or the Switzerland of your office and friends with everyone. Whatever your talents, show those hiring managers how valuable you are across the board.
Don’t be shy about branding yourself! Commit to revealing new aspects of your professional and personal self. There’s so much to be gained!
