I’m talking to my friend Jenny Foss who is a Job Search Strategist who has been in the game for quite a while helping people navigate job searches, advance their careers, and make career pivots.
We start with how to bridge the gap between the job you have and the job you want. Jenny shares the secrets of what makes a great resume and I’ll give you a spoiler, it is not Times New Roman, on 1-inch margins, on one-page. She has way more useful advice than that.
At the end of our conversation, Jenny breaks down a step-by-step process to ask someone and conduct a successful informational interview.
I’ve always hated writing cover letters, but Jenny walked me through a simple framework for writing a cover letter so they don’t sound generic and actually showcase your value as a candidate.
I hope you enjoy my conversation with the career consultant and newly published author of Do This, Not That Career….Jenny Foss.
