worked for nothing before and it’s connecting me to people that ended up giving me new opportunities look you’re in the people business economies are made of people businesses are made of people stay connected I have a brother-in-law that got disconnected from the workforce first it was a month then it was three months the next thing you know it’s a year then it’s two years then it’s three years

this lost employment into an opportunity but look if you get a shot on Thursday to take a job that you think is beneath you dude I want you to hook it up take it and then keep searching the fourth tip to getting a job is something you need to avoid doing not doing okay and that’s this disregard all the negative talk and all the negative people that say no one is hiring there’s millions millions of businesses in America millions of small businesses and trust me they’re all looking for one thing great people so if you’re going to be exceptional extraordinary unique you don’t have a problem if you’re going to be a naysayer no one’s hiring and you don’t have a shot you got to believe you can make this you’ve got you have to believe people are hiring and then you need to go to those places where people value exceptional where people value extraordinary even if you’ve had negative experiences in the past maybe you were taking advantage of it your last job maybe they didn’t value you at your last job maybe maybe you didn’t invest enough energy and effort and creativity in making yourself stand out and extraordinary and that’s why you’re out of work tonight for 25 years I’ve worked for myself I wake up unemployed every single day for 25 years and I got jobs but I got to go get new work all the time same thing for you disregard all the negative naysayers can’t get it you got to be positive you got to find the rainbow you got to find the shining light at the end of the tunnel you’ve got to find that one that one company that will value you the fifth step to you getting the job you want is do not do not rely on a resume they’re just words on a piece of paper people don’t hire resumes nobody hires this they hire people what happens to you when you go in with a resume okay with the HR department or the executive they’re looking at your resume what are they not looking at they’re not looking at you look I want to literally take the resume away from the guy want to take it sir give me that a second I want to tell you who I am see I want him paying attention to me because he’s gonna hurt me he can’t hire this you buy a paper you don’t hire paper I wanted to hire me I want him to see me for who I am this does not have value okay you speak three languages showing that you speak three languages let me tell you who I am let me tell you what I’ve done let me tell you who I’ve worked for and let me tell you most importantly why I’m exceptional why you might look at 83 people for this position and I’m the only one the only one that you should hire and by the way let me tell you this if you don’t hire me I promise you you and the company will regret it and let me tell you why you start ripping off number one number two number three number four number five you need this pitch down you need this presentation down and a piece of paper a resume can’t pitch you how can two or three pieces of paper be more valuable than you as a human being in your presentation you need to have this thing nailed like you’re delivering Shakespeare or some great play or you’re selling your your your finest piece of work right now because when you’re getting a job that’s what you’re doing resumes don’t get positions you know what happens to most resumes they sit on a desk with a bunch of other resumes and they’re all equal you’re not a resume you’re an extraordinary human being I want you to get in front of that person that’s going to make the decision to hire and I want you to sell yourself tip six for getting a job I want you to avoid depending on headhunters and and Craigslist for getting you this job or even for a referral getting me a job don’t misunderstand me I’m not suggesting you wouldn’t use a headhunter are a connecting service I’m not suggesting that at all what I’m suggesting is don’t rely on them understand this the head of hunters pitching lots of people lots what do you want you want to blonde a redhead you want a brunette you want a white guy you want a black guy what do you want you want an engineer you want to mechanic you want to chemists what do you want see their kitchen lots of people who you pitching your pitching you don’t rely on them look I got an agent I got a literary agent I got a marketing agent I got a guy doing my PR I don’t rely on any of them I still have them I still use them they still make connections with me I have friends I have relatives I have business acquaintances I use them all but I don’t depend on them because once you break your reliance and dependence on another person to take care of you you’ll stand up and take care of yourself I promise you it works for everybody so I’m not saying no to headhunters I’m not saying no to searches I’m not saying no to ok I understand that I’m not saying no to getting friends relatives and neighbors and referrals and business acquaintances or the last company to make a phone call for you but don’t rely on them depend on yourself you know stand tall be strong go out into the marketplace put these other tips together and decide dude I’m I’m the guy they’re hiring not the headhunter it’s me rely on yourself you’ll make it go right tip number 7 of 12 is do not rely on the HR department human resources is a screener it is a problem for you do not rely on it now look this is completely I’ll tell you right now completely politically incorrect what I’m about to tell you but I guarantee it’s one of the most important of the 12 steps I’m sharing with you do not rely on the hiring person the HR department the manager the assistant whoever these are filters and screens you want to get in front of one person in that organization one person the owner the executive the top guy or gal the person that makes decisions for everything the person in that organization it literally said this morning no more hiring and can meet somebody at lunch and say harm right now CHR can’t do that anybody below that executive level cannot make that kind of decision you want to go to the very top get in front of a decision-maker don’t rely on that resume have yourself do that presentation to the guy that’s most affected by great people so I’m assuming you’re a great person I’m assuming you want a job I’m assuming you have something to bring to the party then I want you to bring that story that exact story to the top person in the organization not a manager not the VP I want you to bring it right to the President of the United States that’s the point I’m making here okay go to straight to the top bye pass HR how are you going to do that find out somebody that knows the guy at the top somebody knows somebody at the top somebody knows Grant Cardone find out who it is pay him if you have to do whatever it takes find out where he’s at when he arrives in the parking lot when he gets to work where he’s going to be tonight what time he leaves where he goes to lunch should get in front of that guy you want a job you want a great job you want the job you want get in front of the decision-makers not the HR department tip number eight do not rely on social media to get you a job okay Facebook Twitter Linkedin Google+ they can’t get your job so when somebody posts on Facebook that they’re looking for someone don’t post back in comments oh Derka Derka Derka tell me more about the job I just had this recently we were just looking for someone I literally had all these people respond and then half of them half I’m are saying give me more information tell me more about it dude don’t be ridiculous what are you doing get your body in front of that person not start tagging back and forth electronically just like I won’t hire resume I’m not gonna hire a comment on Facebook Twitter or LinkedIn look you’re being lazy wake up you can’t take shortcuts here your job is to get a job you’re in charge of this new company to get a job for myself company that you’ve just started what are you gonna do respond on Facebook are you looking for a job you’re going to get up early right you’re going to stay late you’re going to invest more energy more effort more creativity you don’t do lazy things like give me more information on Facebook under

you might look at this and say best opportunity I have in the whole life was losing the last job I had because now I got my game on tip 9 I want to talk about the interview now you’re in the interview you’re in front of the right person you’re in front of a decision-maker you’re not relying on your resume anymore what I want you to do is this I want you to talk about what you’re going to do for these people this company this individual not what you’ve done in the past I want you to put all your attention on what you can do for this guy watching literally to paint a picture about how effective how great you’re going to be what you can do for his company going forward I don’t want you to talk about what you did for the last company because every time you refer to the last company or the last job or where you were three or four or five years ago you’re reminding this guy of the past Wow he’s only interested in what if he’s a decision maker like I am I’m not interested in yesterday last month three months ago bring me to my future my future is an executive as an entrepreneur has hope in it you don’t want to talk about three weeks ago three months ago three years ago you want to talk about what can you do for me today what can you do for this company what do you where do you see yourself fitting in where can you make the biggest bang where can you exchange with this individual in such a monster way then he’s like my god man who are you dude who are you where have you been why haven’t you come here sooner I’m glad that other company let you go dude let’s put this guy on payroll right now get started you see what I’m doing you see the difference make a difference in how he views you and his company going forward it’s mental ownership you got to get that guy to think about hiring you where you’re going to sit what desk you’re going to be at how you’re going to be effective how are you going to communicate with him how are you going to solve problems for him that’s what you need to go into this interview with not to pass go get it tip number 10 you’re not going in to do an interview you’re going in to sell yourself you’re going in to present yourself as a valuable extraordinary product that no matter what they offer you in money you’re worth a hundred times that this is all about selling okay you want a job this is about selling yourself now I’m gonna tell you right now when I go into an interview to get a job I don’t come out without a clothes they’ll either hire me on the spot or they’ll regret not hiring me you might not hire me but I promise you you will regret not hire me and are you’ll say dude who was that cat who was that guy that just came in here you want to control that interview and make it a sales presentation tell them you’re extraordinary tell them you’re great tell them you can make a difference yep oversell yourself if you have to don’t undersell yourself over commit over commit over a promise sell if you don’t know how to sell get my book seller be sold the book is sick fundamentals of how to sell anything yourself a product a brand to market yourself to correctly promote yourself because here’s the truth if you’re worried about over selling yourself the problem is you’re not sold on you so the first thing we have to do before you go to this interview where you’re going to sell yourself is we’re

higher price I am a revenue guy so you do that in a presentation they’re going to be like hang on a second I got to bring so-and-so in here because nobody’s doing this in the interview not to talk
