A few weeks ago I was interviewed by Amy Franko, a business coach out of Ohio. We had a very nice interview where we talked about a number of things – you can get a download of the interview (as well as a transcription) from this page (I’m #4).
Some of the stuff we talk about (her audience is not job seekers, it’s entrepreneurs):
- thoughts on being an entrepreneur,
- stuff about my book and how I’ve used it as a marketing tool,
- the name of a movie that had a major impact on me as an entrepreneur (I saw it on my way to a speaking gig in Turkey),
- and a number of thoughts on using LinkedIn.
If you have a few minutes and any entrepreneurial inclination, check it out 🙂

Nice article. I actually think most of what you discuss applies perfectly to the job seeker. Getting noticed, rising above the din, being hungry, marketing, reinventing ones self? Heck, even being an entrepreneur.
I think you can adapt just about anything you faced, overcame and accomplished to almost every job search.
Jason, thanks so much for sharing this with your audience!
The things I really took away from your points –
1. Tenacity is key – don’t give up too quickly because success is usually right around the corner.
2. Regarding LinkedIn – having a pristine profile and taking time to look for people to connect with – whether it’s people who might use your services or potential joint venture partners
3. Plus I liked that you noted your family (and particularly your wife!) as a strength. 🙂

Brad, I totally agree, I see so many similarities in what I do for my business and what professionals do for career management. That’s one reason I shared this here on this blog.
Amy, it was a really fun interview, thanks again for the opportunity. I don’t often get to talk about the “what’s under the hood” at JJ, or how I got to where I’m at… 🙂
