Imagine moving 3,000 miles away from your friends and family to go work your dream job at your favorite company.

Then, that company goes under 9 months later. 😬

“I had a bunch of people saying: ‘What do you want to do next?’ And that question brought tons of anxiety to me!

But I love Tony Robins, and he always says: ask a better question, get a better answer. 

So I said: how do I want to learn and grow next? What skills do I have, how can I continue to use those? But also, how can I maybe expand my skillset? That question puts you in the driver’s seat.”

Listen to learn how Anthony got back on his feet in no time by leveraging his reputation as an awesome employee at his former job into an amazing new opportunity at Woebot, where he is now the talent acquisition lead.

As a talent acquisition lead, Anthony also has some great tips on how to get hired if you don’t have much experience to lean on:

“Do a project that’s literally three or four slides in Google slides and show: hey, here’s a problem that your company has and here’s how I think I can solve it. You’ve got to be in the business of solving problems.”
