#18 - Austin Belcak Shares His Best Strategies For Landing Your Dream Job
Austin Belcak joins me on this episode of the podcast to discuss unconventional methods for landing your dream job. Austin and I both believe that the current system for finding and landing jobs is broken (both for hiring managers and those seeking jobs). There is a lot of noise and not enough signal. Early sidetracks (or missteps) in one’s career or education also can be seemingly insurmountable barriers to overcome when trying to level-up in a career or make a radical change in vocation. What can we do about it?
Austin was forced to think creatively when it came to landing his job at Microsoft. With a 2.5 GPA and a modest amount of work experience, he discovered a variety of methods and strategies for finding ways to add real value to employers and convince decision-makers to bet on him.
Listen to this episode where we cover:
*How Austin landed a great job at Microsoft, without a stellar GPA or prior career experience.
*What motivated Austin to start a side business while working full-time.
*The most viciously misleading advice most job seekers blindly follow.
*How to start a career in a new field, with no connections.
*Why applying to jobs online is ineffective, and what to do about it.
…and much more!
