Job Hopping is a career killer
I am the "The Voice of Job Seekers!" I offer compassionate career and job search advice as I hack and re-imagine the job search process. You need to be "the prescription to an employer's job description." You must be solution-oriented and work in positions in companies where you are the remedy. Your job search must be a lifestyle, and your career must be in front of you constantly. You can no longer shed your aspirations at the change seasons. There are strengths you have that need constant use and development.
Be sure you sign up to download my E-Book, "421 Modern Job Search Tips 2021!"
You can find my career advice and work in media outlets such as Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, Glassdoor, and many other outlets.
Thank you for joining me for the 10th year of “The Voice of Job Seekers!”
Not ten seasons. Ten long years.
I started this podcast on Sept. 13, 2013. I have published over 20 shows a year and hosted nearly 200 guests.
I’m kicking off this year with a great panel. Jack Kelly and Kenneth Lang are long-time experienced career professionals and experts. They understand the space, what people need to do to stand out, and the work it takes.
Jack Kelly, Compliance Recruiter, entrepreneur, CEO of WeCruitr.io, and Forbes Senior Careers Contributor. He talks a lot about the Future of Work, especially job search. Look for his LinkedIn Live with Jack Kelly show and Blind Ambition.
Kenneth Lang is the founder of KML Consultants, a job search strategist, and a fellow introvert.
Both can be found very active on LinkedIn as helpful to job seekers as possible.

Focus On Offering An Employer Value To Avoid Seeming Desperate by Mark Anthony Dyson
No one likes a desperate job seeker. You may have seen these kinds of statements in your timeline or phrases mentioned by friends: “Please? I need a job! I’ll do anything!” “I’ve tried everything.” Listen, I get it: Your company announced layoffs last week. Your position is being eliminated. Or you’ve made “too many little errors” lately.
But the thing is, employers don’t like this kind of desperation. They go out of their way to avoid it, and companies construct many filters to ensure they get the most qualified candidates. Employers don’t want to hire unemployed workers, and one thing’s for sure: they don’t like being inundated with desperate pleas or requests.
