Face Your Fears, Unlock Opportunity!

 

“Sometimes you don’t realize your own strength until you come face to face with your greatest fears”. It was two weeks before Christmas and I was out on street, job eliminated, two small kids and a huge mortgage. What was my greatest fear turned out to be a gift.

 

I was introduced to a great coach who prepared me for the rest of my career. I learn then that there are 4 things that should always be in your career toolkit because prep and timing can be critical to landing on your feet.

 

1. Resume. Language needs to reflect a look forward not just a rehash of the past. Important elements are summary, competencies, experiences.

 

2. Media pros should have a 3-5 min demo reel. It should have a strong slate with a striking image and it should be available on YouTube or Vimeo.

 

3. You should be able to deliver an elevator pitch at a moment's notice. It has 3 simple parts; who you are, what you've done, where you are headed. 4 or 5 well constructed sentences of "Your Career; The Movie"

 

4. LinkedIn profile updated. Professional image and a title bar with SEO optimized keywords. Solid summary (you can use the same elevator pitch)

 

Build a strong toolkit and the greatest fear in your career could lead you to your strengths and greatest opportunity.
