Are you looking for work?
Well, the wisdom in the following 7 minutes might make all the difference…
Enlightened Entrepreneur, Tim Fargo, in his video blog below, offers you some vital life lessons on how to find a job by targeting your passion, and landing the job you love!
Here’s a few nuggets:
“Be targeted and persistent…
There is a magic, when people come in and are looking for work in a specific company. (If you’ll excuse the analogy), it’s a little bit like if somebody says ‘Hey I’m just looking for a date’. Most people aren’t very interested in that, most people want someone who’s interested in them. Businesses are the same way. People want someone who’s focused on their business’…
Find a place that you’re really hot for…
The passion it’s palpable, you can feel it,
…and when people have that passion and they really want to work somewhere, the chances of you getting that job increase dramatically. So taking the time up front, to look around for the right thing, that’s going to make a bigger difference … than sending out a 100 resumes.”
** If you’re short on time wizz through to 3 mins in **
I second that. I’ve often gone into interviews armed with research about the company, and even the interviewer. It definitely helps to handpick who you really want to work for! And be ready to explain WHY you really really want to work for your chosen company. (Also helps to look them straight in the eyes and reinforce that point just before you shake hands and walk out the door).
And what another great point from Tim: ‘if you love the work you do, it radiates out to the rest of your life’.
The best of luck. Leave a comment if you can. Would love to hear how you’re getting on (we’ve all been there, and some of us still are).

World Changing Speech by Emma Watson on men & women –
“I’ve seen young men suffering from mental illness unable to ask for help for fear it would make them look less “macho”—in fact in the UK suicide is the biggest killer of men between 20-49; eclipsing road accidents, cancer and coronary heart disease. I’ve seen men made fragile and insecure by a distorted sense of what constitutes male success. Men don’t have the benefits of equality either.
We don’t often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence.
If men don’t have to be aggressive in order to be accepted women won’t feel compelled to be submissive. If men don’t have to control, women won’t have to be controlled.
Both men and women should feel free to be sensitive. Both men and women should feel free to be strong… It is time that we all perceive gender on a spectrum not as two opposing sets of ideals.
If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are—we can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It’s about freedom”. – #EmmaWatson
