No more Mr. Nice Guy: time to win a job. No more waiting for permission!

“Am I allowed to pitch this company?”
Yes, don’t wait for permission.

“But the job description says 3 years experience. Can I still pitch the company?”
Yes, don’t wait for permission.

“I don’t want to be annoying, do I really send a follow up email?”
It’s not annoying, don’t wait for permission.

Ditch the resume

“I still think I need a resume. I don’t want to break the rules.”

There are no rules!

Be so good they can’t ignore you. Show enthusiasm.

Make yourself undeniably valuable.

Send a pitch. Win a job.

Don’t wait for permission.
