In this episode, Davina covered many topics that will be of interest to the job seeker, including:

·         Personal branding is a foundational element when looking for a job, as it helps set you apart from others; she talked about “packaging brand you.”

·         She discussed what networking is and how you can make it more comfortable for yourself

·         Successful interviewing means you have done your homework on the company and the people you are speaking with, but mainly you want to be honest and yourself

·         The importance of staying true to what brings you joy and your purpose

·         How looking for a job for people of color has added challenges

Davina is honest, thoughtful, experienced, and giving.  I know you will enjoy her as much as I did and that you will come back to listen to this episode again later in your job search.
