What do you want to do?

What do you want to do?

I can't believe how many people I meet who cannot answer this simple question when it comes to their career.

They can answer questions about the "symptoms" of work - nice people, close commute, good health plan, an understanding boss, free pizza, etc. But they have the hardest time defining exactly what they WANT to do.

Before you write that resume, ask yourself "What do I really want to do?".

Write it down. Write three versions - the long, rambling-talk-as-much-as-you-want version, the top of the resume version and the "elevator pitch" version (this one shoule be the length of an elevator ride between two floors, about 8-10 seconds).

Practice it. Say it out loud in front of a mirror. Now go live it. Fine tune your message as you go.

Just make up your mind - what do you want to do?

BTW - Leader of sales force for a cutting edge technology company. See. It's easy.
