 In this episode, we discussed many practical and actionable recruiting ideas, including:

 ·         It is not that you made a mistake in the past; everyone does; it is how you overcame it and grew from the experience.

·         Practice your interview, which helps you gain confidence and gets you into that glow state to prepare yourself mentally.

·         In the recruiting process, you often have two steps forward and one back; try to be graceful for those around you, give yourself kindness, and stay connected to your network for support.

·         Don’t take rejection personally – maybe the position was not meant for you.

·         The three things to remember are to update your LinkedIn profile so people can find you leverage your network, and this is your opportunity to redefine yourself, so take advantage of it.

·         You may need two resumes – one that the applicant tracking system companies use can read and one for your in-person meetings.

 Jennifer gave us her expertise and experience in the recruiting and selection world.  I know that you will be able to implement several new job transition ideas tomorrow after you have listened to this episode.  Enjoy – send Jennifer or me any questions you have – leave a rating for this show – share this with others.
