I thought I did everything right—I went to college, took on every internship under the sun, worked hard, and… couldn’t land a job to save my life.
Now, I’ve been fortunate enough to become an award-winning counterterrorism professional, and accelerate quickly through the corporate ranks!
I was grateful to eventually be featured as a career coach in Forbes, Wall Street Journal, SELF, TEDx and more for my work in helping hundreds of others do the same in their own careers.
…But I didn’t get there doing any of the typical career or job hunt advice you hear.
In fact doing a lot of those typical job hunt moves—applying for jobs online, asking people to pass my resume around, and more—got me nowhere.
…Perhaps you can relate?
After finishing my degree, I spent months applying for jobs and never hearing back... And eventually, I accepted a job as an admin assistant making minimum wage.
To know that I had real potential to make an impact in the world as I sat in my desk doing nothing of meaning really ate at my soul.
