Waiting on pins and needles, going crazy figuring out how to dress for the interview or how to wear your hair…
Intimidated by body language and unexpected questions during the in-person interrogation, that makes your stomach flip…
When I applied for a job as a Marketing Manager for an IT academy I was invited for an interview,
One of the six people interviewing me started to pick on me for using the word “dazzled” in my cover letter.
It was totally on brand,
But this engineer didn’t dig that flavor or my bubbly nature, regardless of skill.
Right then I knew it wasn’t a fit.
Needless to say,
I went from having dreams of working for a small IT academy to writing for Thrive Global, working for millionaires across the globe on how to amplify their personal brand and thought influence.
A lot has changed over the years.
And I still use the word “dazzled” wherever possible 😉
Never dull your flavors to fit into someone else’s recipe, especially when seeking a fit in your career.
