Transcript:

So, you spend all your time — get your resume in order, get your interview skills down, get that new suit, that new dress — get all those externals set down. Get all your ducks in a row. Once you do that, the hard work begins. Once you do that, then you’ve got to go to a nice quiet room, out into the woods, down by the lake, wherever, your favorite place and think. I tell people about this all time in my column, you’ve got to do some hard thinking. Because that’s where the work really gets done in your career. You have to think very deeply about the internal aspects of your career. Now, the great thing about this is as you think more about the internal aspects, as you talk more about yourself and what you want, it actually helps with the externals. How are you going to write a goal on your resume if you don’t really know what you want to do.How are you going to write a cover letter about what you want to accomplish in the world if you haven’t really thought about it. Now, I say this because I meet so many people who don’t ever think about these things.
