Job Seekers: Don't Be A Flyer-On-The-Corner Person

Hey job seekers! Have you ever seen those folks on the sidewalk of a busy street handing out flyers? They have one tough job. Talk about dealing with rejection!? I don't think a single one of us hasn't seen them in action and thought, "Glad that's not me." And yet, if you are a job seeker who's been working endlessly to send out as many resumes as possible, you are acting just like the flyer distributor. Which means, people are saying, "Glad that's not me," about YOU! In this video, I explain how your effort to blast your credentials to every Tom, Dick, and Harriet is backfiring. Please don't make the classic "quantity instead of quality" mistake so many desperate job seekers are making today. Instead, listen to how a scaled-back, smarter-not-harder job search will get you the respect and results you want and deserve!

  • Possibility of a hacker compromising customer data for spam or identity theft
  • The fear that a customer data breach will result in a reputational damage
  • Concern that someone might use a stolen card to make an online purchase
  • Thoughts of an employee mistakenly sending confidential data to a wrong email
