Chapter 1The Foundation of Your Job Search

A few basic principles should underlie your job search and carry over into all aspects of your career:

  • Be honest with yourself.

  • Be honest with others.

  • Think like the boss.

  • Be a problem solver.

  • Sell yourself.

  • Tell stories.

  • Be positive.

These fundamentals interrelate and build on each other throughout the rest of the book and your job search. You’ll need to sell yourself as a problem solver, because you know that’s what the boss wants, and you’ll do it by telling stories.
