Your core values, like most, eventually means everything in your desired career choice. You’ll hear Nii-Ato Enchill-Bentsi, and I discuss in depth what you’ll need to know about using your values to guide your job search. And you’ll also hear an excerpt from my LinkedIn Live stream show with Jack Kelly about why you should ignore unemployment data.
I wrote up the show notes and embedded the live stream in this article.

As the holiday season approaches, I may release three shows instead of two in November. Along with the shows, two of them will come with newsletters. I anticipate there will be new sign-ups for the E-book, “421 Modern Job Search Tips 2021.” There will be special announcements made exclusive to email sign-ups only.
