How to Increase Your Sales in 3-5 Seconds Per Call

Hi I’m Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. And people hire me for no BS career advice globally.

Now, most of the information people get about how to avoid burnout is very predictable and I know you’re not going to follow it. Most of it falls into the realm of set daily and weekly time limits for job searching, and stick to it. Set up achievable goals, take breaks, do exercise, eat properly, get good sleep. But you’re not going to do this, you know this stuff already, and you’re not doing it.

So what can I say that’s different? And what I’m going to go with it is to say is focus on your strengths, and working with people who know you well enough that they can zero in on those strengths, and introduce you to opportunities that fit you.

Most people waste a lot of time applying for jobs that aren’t a good fit for their set of skills and experience. Thus, they waste time, because it’s like going out on a date with someone you’d never get married to. But if you focus on your strengths, or on your network of relationships, who know you well enough to be able to introduce you to quality opportunities that fit you, your skills, personality, and such, you stand a better shot of heading off burnout.
