It’s Cliche, But It’s True

Making yourself marketable to employers is a multi-faceted proposition, but there is one area in particular I see people struggle with….

Too often they see themselves as products, and as things they feel they should differentiate themselves from other candidates.

“Look at all these things that make me different from other applicants!”

That is fine as far as it goes, but it isn’t what is going to land you the interview or get you the offer. Don’t struggle to be different, struggle to be remarkable.

I know it is cliche, but, be the rockstar. Be the person the interview team has to talk about at the end of the day. Find out who you really are, what you do best, and then shine as bright as you can.

You can do this!
