Think clearly, act concisely.

That’s a good formula for accomplishing most important goals – especially those that take multiple efforts and have a lot of unknowns. Like finding a job.

The first thing you have to do is stop and think. Don’t just mindlessly ship out applications and resumes. Think about roles and companies that interest you and what you can send them to really get their attention.

Then stop thinking!

Don’t overthink it

People who are sharp enough to stop and think about the job hunt instead of just plodding along like the masses are often also people who can think too much. Don’t overthink!

Don’t make it too complicated. Pick a few good targets. Make them something hard to ignore (we love video pitches). Send it. Follow up.

That’s it. It doesn’t need to be perfect. Just deliberate, genuine, and persistent.

Start the Job Hunt Crash Course

Looking to take action? Remember, resumes have a response rate under 1%.

Video pitches have a response rate over 80%.

Stop sending paper resumes. Start sending video pitches.

To learn the mindset and tools of this revolutionary approach, you can take the Job Hunt Crash Course.

We’ll take you step-by-step from zero to hired.

For months I was struggling to fit my non-traditional experiences into a resume and it simply didn’t work. With Crash, I was able to go from pitch to interview to offer within 24 hours. It felt like magic.
