I met Nick Corcodilos when he was speaking to a group of resume writers in Savannah, at a conference. His message was so blunt that some offended writers walked out and paced the hallway, fuming. I went out to see what the chatter was, and how this dude could have offended these people so much.
Not too long after, we were on a phone call, and over the years our relationship was strengthened. Here’s what I love about Nick: he tells it like it is.
One of my chief complaints as a job seeker was that I couldn’t get honest feedback from anyone. Information was sanitized and simplified. I wasn’t getting the results I needed. How do you make progress when you don’t get the right information from anyone?
Nick was the guy who didn’t hold back, didn’t give you sanitized information… if you wanted an answer, he gave the answer. Some people can’t handle that. But most job seekers need that. That’s why I have loved Nick’s writings, blog posts, newsletter, columns, etc.
And you should too.
To get a taste of what I’m talking about, check out this celebration post: 600 Editions: The Best of Ask The Headhunter! Bookmark that post and read each of the posts that Nick links to. And sign up for his newsletter (there is a link at the bottom of his post titled “encourage them to subscribe”… this is one newsletter that I have been on for years, and I read almost every email he sends!
Congrats Nick, and on behalf of job seekers everyone, THANK YOU!
