Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
In school they teach you that you have to sell yourself to get a job. You have to have experience and your resume has to ooze it. If you’re lucky enough to get an interview, you have to ooze then too. You’re suppose to walk in there and talk about how great you are and have all the right answers to all the right questions because you want this job, you need this job.
What if you didn’t do that? What if you didn’t have to sell yourself at all? What if your resume was simply your name and a link to your blog? What if there was some way to skip the getting hired part and just show up and start doing the work, negotiate the job later? Or what if you interviewed the company instead?
All I’m saying is, change the balance of power.
Consider having all the confidence in the world in your reputation that precedes you.
Know what you bring to the table, but don’t shout it from the rooftops.
Have an aura of awesome.
Be the person that’s gonna rock the job (or the role, or the gig, or whatever), not the person that merely wants it.
