Some people say that a pitch is like a resume, but in a slightly nicer (video) format. But that's like saying that a phone is just glass and metal in a slightly nicer format. It misses the whole point.
Let's get real for a minute. If you're like most people here, you're not actually job hunting. you're just thinking about job hunting. We get it, it's fun. After all, you can be whatever you want to be in your imagination...
I was on a call with a young lady this week to see if I could help her out on her job hunt. For each application she sent, she had written a great, personalized cover letter. Yet she never heard back. What gives?
Letting your imagination run freely to envision the future of your dreams, it's easy to get scared off by all the things that could go wrong. But what if I told you there is a way to let fear work for you, instead of against you?
"I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and 3 years of work experience. Hire me."
This is what your average job application with a resume sounds like. And it might even seem decent. What could possibly be wrong with this?
Have you ever played an online game, and you were about to make an epic move, but then the game lagged, and so you missed and got beat?
That's frustrating stuff.
Job hunting can often feel very similar.
