Getting the Job You Desire

How many job interviews have you had in the last 12 months? How many job offers did you get?

Let’s assume you’ve had some interviews but didn’t get a job offer.

Prof. Dan Schechtman, Nobel Prize Winner, Chemistry (2011)

Become an expert in what you do. If you become an expert in something, I promise you, you will have a wonderful career.

Prof Ed Byrne Ao, Vice-Chancellor & President, Monash University, Australia

The idea that you broaden yourself and become a deeper person through some broad general education before you went to a professional discipline is inherently a good idea. You generally get your broad education by living, by reading, and by exposure to the world at large.

Learn some interview techniques. Read and do some research. Eventually, you’ll get the job you desire. And yes, it’s hard to learn about opera until you’ve been to a few operas. It’s hard to learn job interview techniques until you’ve had job interviews:-)
