At the ripe young age of 21, I graduated from college without a job or a clue.

All my life up to that point, I’d been assured going to college was the de facto path to the good life. But no one bothered to mention getting a good job was not guaranteed.

In fact, my experience proved quite the contrary. As a guy who’d grown up chasing prestige, the thought of taking a low-wage job—as a fresh college graduate—just to make ends meet embarrassed me.

So, I did what any sensible prestige-seeking recent college graduate might do. I signed up to take the LSAT and took the first prestigious-sounding white-collar job I could find: working in financial services.

The half-decade following that first job right out of college offered me a full serving of humble pie with a heaping side of insights about  what it takes to get hired and find career fulfillment.

In many ways, this guide is a collection of advice, tips, and lessons I learned the hard way. And I’m sharing all here in once place, along with a number of other resources I found useful along the way. I hope they can serve you well in your pursuit of a legendary career.

What it takes to get hired in 2020

There’s a lot of career advice out there.

Most of it sucks.

It’s littered with advice like “update your resume,” “personalize your cover letter,” and “don’t post beer pictures online.”

But all of that kind of advice falls short because it overlooks a more fundamentally important element of getting hired: anyone can say they’re worth hiring.

It today’s world, only two factors mactor when it comes to winning opportunities:

      1. Your ability to create value
      2. Your ability to convince others you can create value

That’s it.

Employers today are bombarded with applications—did you know the average job posting receives 250 applications? Not only is volume an issue, but most candidates apply through the normal channels with similar-looking applications.
