J.T’s Expert Career Advice
What is the best advice you could give to a job seeker today?
Throw out any previous knowledge you have about job search and start fresh. It’s totally different than it was a few years ago. You need to know how to build a proactive, custom job search that will help you get results faster.
How do you stay updated in the career advising/HR industry?
I read LinkedIn daily and subscribe to several HR blogs that I find are always ahead of the curve. I’m also very curious. I’m always seeking info on how HR is changing because it’s something I’m passionate about.
