Greetings and Salutations to all you Homo sapiens who peruse the ramblings of my fingertips purposely written in the key of soul. I would like to introduce you to my good friend Mr. Mike Mann. Mike owns and operates MusicMann Studios on Chase and Oklahoma in Milwaukee, WI. Last Friday I sat down and kicked the ballistics with Mike for a couple hours on the topics of Beats, Rhymes and Life. The conversation inspired me to reach out to the planet on behalf of said summit and its findings.
Be the Leader that gets hired! One essential fact is employers love to hire leaders. Someone with leadership experience, no matter where it comes from, tells the employer that this person is an i3 person. Initiative-taker, intelligent, and can handle the pressure of working independently. Leadership experience communicates to an employer that the individual across from them possesses the three I’s because the employer identifies you as a leader like them. So the interview turns from job-seeker and HR professional to leader and leader.
