We're talking about one of the most dangerous types of jobs in existence today. No, it's not drilling for oil, climbing cellphone towers, or swinging a 6 foot chainsaw around all day.

Top 5 Tips - Success in 2021
2020 and 2021 were major reformative years for me. Today I'm sharing the top 5 takeaways from the past year and how they can give YOU a leg up in your job search. These 5 things will help make sure you grow in your time out of work: 5.) Remote work is here to stay - take it seriously as an option. 4.) The importance of using social media to reach out about what you are doing and what you need from other people - it's give and take. 3.) Not everyone wants to or should move upwards - find your BEST fit, not the one that makes the most money 2.) The best job market isn’t the one you see, it’s the one you make - it takes time, and it takes vulnerability and willingness to talk to others. 1.) If you want to be taken seriously as an applicant, create. - Making something to show others that demonstrates your skills and successes is key. And if you reach out, I'll even help you do it!
