Gaining an Edge on Your Career and Life

Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - January 11, 2018 - 31:46

It’s 2018 and that means that many of you have gotten on the resolution bandwagon. The most common ones are to exercise more/eat less; save more/spend less; and of course one of our favorites: SLEEP MORE! Career objectives are among the most difficult to tackle. After all, if “Getting a New Job” were so easy, you probably would have done so already. Today’s guest is here to help kick-start your efforts. Pat Hedley, the author of the recent book, Meet 100 People: A How-To Guide to the Career and Life Edge Everyone's Missing, says that whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, getting out there and meeting people is probably the biggest key to any success you’re going to have. Of course you know this intuitively, but emails only go so far. To establish genuine relationships and to build a network with life-long value, we have to proactively meet people -- and do so IN PERSON. Pat explains three key issues that are critical to meeting people and expanding your network and she also covers:How to establish a network when you are starting outHow to properly frame a job searchThe right questions to askWhy rejection isn’t a bad thingIf you -- or someone you know -- is unhappy at work and looking to make a change, maybe 2018 is the year. “Better Off” is sponsored by Betterment.
