    Avoid Sophisticated and Saturated Markets

    By Nov 24,2020

    One of the biggest mistakes people make in their job searches is going after jobs in sophisticated markets.  A sophisticated and saturated market is one that’s populated by a lot of people like you—with your qualifications, background, and so forth. If you’re competing for a job in a sophisticated market, you’re going to be more harshly judged and more likely eliminated than if you’re looking in a less sophisticated market.  The most sophisticated markets will be the most concerned about things like: Where you went to school Whom you...

    Detroit Car Washes, Cash, Drug Dealers, and the Character of Your Goals

    Gravitate Towards People and Organizations That Appear to Have Good Luck

    By Jan 23,2021

    The Rothchilds have another maxim: “Never do anything with an unlucky man or place.” That is to say, never have anything to do with a man or place which never succeeds, because, although a man may appear honest and intelligent, yet if he tries this or that thing and always fails, it is on account of some fault or infirmity that you may not be able to discover but nevertheless which must exist. –P.T. Barnum I have spent a large portion of my life finding jobs for people. In this career, I have gradually come to realize that there...
