Hi! I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter.. I'm called The Big Game Hunter because
my honey down leaders and staff for organizations for more than 40 years
today I want to talk with you about the theme of how to conduct your job
search and why using this type of approach is going to be so much more
effective and the theme I want to think about is what makes you different you
see, when most people conduct their job search, they take what I'll call me "a me, too
approach" to it. You know, the resumes are pretty standard. Their interview
styles a pretty standard you know you know you become one of the pack one of
the herd and you know unless you're willing to accept being a commodity and
earn a commodity salary which I don't think you really do I think you want to
make a lot more money. I think you want to have an exceptional career, an
exceptional life. I think you want to challenge. I think you want to get
excited about what you do and you taking your job search in a particular way
where frankly you're born so I'll give you an example every resume look at says
the same thing it doesn't matter what level of position it is they're all kind
of formulaic and in need to talk about the special qualities of unique
successes that you've had that makes you a go-to person when you're doing an
interview. You're asked that "tell me about yourself" question (my
favorite answer to that is well I've been in the field now for such a such an
amount of time. For the last three years, my role has been to . . . and you talk about
your role responsibilities and accomplishments and then you continue
by saying but you probably hear that a bunch of times. But what makes me
different is . . . And then you talk about those unique things that you've done,
those inequalities that you have that make you stand out from the pack so your
goal in your job search is to make yourself the go-to
person the leader the champion that individual that's one of a kind not
another "one of many." So this is Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. I hope you
