4/2 9:15 am pst - Dev Aujla, the CEO of recruiting firm Catalog shared 50 WAYS TO GET A JOB!

LISTEN to today's conversation with Dev Aujla!

The age-old advice for finding a job is pretty standard: Follow your passion. Network. Work on your resume. Apply to job boards. Wait. This classic advice hasn’t changed since the 1970s. And it promotes a process that is tedious, demoralizing, and even frightening. But there is a better way! Dev Aujla, the CEO of Catalog, a recruiting and insight firm, takes a vastly different approach, grounded in three years of research, over 3000 interviews, and $500,000 in funded research. He gives people back their agency, freedom, and creativity, offering tangible steps that will actually help people find their next right job in a meaningful career. Based on Aujla’s wildly successful website of the same name, his new book 50 WAYS TO GET A JOB changes the way readers go about finding the perfect career by teaching them to ask the right questions (of themselves and others).

Dev Aujla on April 2nd shares tips on how to jumpstart the process, such as:

· Write fiction about yourself

· Go to a job board…and then leave

· Practice four new ways of introducing yourself

· Win over someone that you had cast aside

· And, when you finally get that dream job…schedule a vacation between your old job and your new one to buffer the two experiences and make them feel distinct

Whether you are actively looking for or a job or are happy in the one you have but want to be prepared for what happens next, 50 WAYS TO GET A JOB will calm your nerves and set you apart from the competition.
