If you live an unconventional life like I do, you know that getting useful help is a struggle.

Avish struggled with this for a few years until he finally figured a few things out and created a coaching program to help other unconventional professionals too! Avish and Craig talk about how you should take advice, how to get clarity on your place in the market, making sure you understand why people buy from you and more.

Episode 149 – Abby Kohut – Job Searches / audio

job search

Abby Kohut (@Absolutely_Abby on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss job searches. It seems everyone is always looking for a job and with the downturn a few years back, more people were unexpectedly looking for a job. That’s when Abby Kohut (Absolutely Abby to her fans) started a crusade to get 1 million people hired. But, you can’t get hired until you find another job. Being gainfully employed full time for the past 12 years, Craig is completely out of the loop in the job search department. Times have changed and some issues that weren’t a reality when he last looked for work are coming to the forefront. Abby and Craig discuss where to look for a job, why networking is the most important part of your job search, interview techniques and how social media can really mess things up for you (even though they say it shouldn’t). They also discuss the hidden job market, if potential employers prefer you to already have a job and if they prefer whether you’ve had that job for awhile or not!
