I always wanted to know my blood type. So I asked at my recent appointment and was pleased to find out I among a narrow 8.5% of Caucasians, so I guess that makes me rare. B+.
Conversely, a B+ GPA average in school is not remarkable or even a differentiator these days. Competition is intense. That grad needs to buff everything else up to make a showing as best in class.
I try to be positive (get it?). Grads, you should be too in your job search.
Statistics out of context can tell different stories to different people. Your job is to rise above the above-average, to the top 8.5% or less.
That B+, above-average resume and cover letter will not get past the bots to human eyes: I learned this from a guy who really knows his stuff, and now your son/daughter can learn tips, techniques and templates from my esteemed experienced, colleague and friend Mike Mittleman.
Did I mention I liked working with him too?
We are partnering to co-produce an online package of educational materials for the recent (class of 2020) college graduates and rising seniors (class of 2021) looking for their first all-important career positions. It’s titled “Your First Career Position: The Best In Class Program.”
Parents want them ideally out of the house, to become taxpayers. Period. Isn’t that the way of the world? It’s just even more competitive in our COVID new now economy!
We are collaborating on e-learning modules in the package on networking, interviewing, and I am slathering on my special LinkedIn sauce to make it all tie together.
A package of courses. Hours of e-based learning in one place. Decades of experience on the topics that must be shared.
Grand announcement coming soon.
Not a B+ work, rather an A+ tour de force to set your dependent on to independence, and no blood will be spilled, I promise!
