Robert was in a VP level role, earning great money and enjoying life and work. He was well known around his industry. He was great at what he did.  

Things were pretty good overall… Until they weren’t!

Robert got laid off. No big deal right. A great opportunity to take some time and get a way. (Thanks soft landings and severance!)

Except when it came time to go back to work: 8 months passed. Then 10, 12… 18 months passed and he’d had a few interviews but nothing had panned out.

He and his partner were pulling their hair out a bit trying to figure out what was going on. He’s a smart guy, he gets results, why wasn’t this working?

They had been through everything, was it his interview style? Simply unlucky? Was he coming off as desperate?

That’s where I had the opportunity to meet Robert. As he was trying to figure out what was working and what wasn’t.

It turns out Robert’s answer wasn’t what you’d think it would be.
