I think we are looking at the job market in the wrong way. We are always told you have to get that first job to get anywhere. That it’s that first job that will define your success. What is really so important about that first job?
I say lets look at things differently. Lets not try to have the first job or the prim and polished resumes with which we blanket our city. Don’t look for one, just start working. If you are a musician just play music, if you are a writer start a blog, a marketer just start marketing. Do these for friends, bands that you like, even companies. There is nothing telling you not to start. Starting is the hardest part for most of us. But this is how you will stand out.
Then what happens? Companies, organizations, and people begin to seek you out.
