    Manage Your Career as a Business

    in Jobs

    Once you start the network machinery running, the next step is training yourself to think of your job search as a business with you as its CEO.  All of the decisions affecting your job search begin and end with you and you will learn the fine art of taking responsibility for them.

    Every so often someone crosses your path who becomes a lightning rod that changes your life forever.  For me, the turning point was meeting Mr. Rod Colón back in January of 1999.  While exploring consulting opportunities, a friend suggested I contact Rod to discuss tactics and strategies.  As I recall, he had no leads to share with me at that time; nevertheless I walked away from that meeting with a strange and inspiring thought:  Whatever Rod Colón was involved in, I wanted to be a part of it.  He had brilliant business insights, an animated, uplifting and thoroughly engaging personality, and what appeared to be a sixth sense about how to help people find jobs.
