As the war for top talent is at an all-time high, our need for capable teammates to lighten our load has hit the "yesterday is too late" warning level, and our own desire to get much more out of our career trajectories is somewhere between red and white-hot, a simple question is rarely answered correctly: what are we to do to find the right people and to stand out ourselves?
While the traditional resume has been enhanced by better design techniques (infographics! Presi! personal websites!) and smartly maintained social presences, these mediums can (still) be too easily manipulated in the applicant's favor—just like that supposedly objective reference call that gets made in the final stages of most hiring decisions.
The answer to finding the right talent and / or positioning ourselves better therefore can't be digital, analog, or even external. Rather, it comes down to one simple thing truth: professional excellence. Either you have it, or you need to work hard to achieve it.
This presentation contains practical, next-level tips to help you become the best version of your professional self (for job seekers) and help you better vett talent (for job hirers). Come away armed with the tactics you need to grow and nurture your skills, deliver world class work product, earn trust and respect, successfully collaborate, and generally take your game up a notch so you advance your career.
