In this episode of Rewired Mind, I sit down with Anthony Garone and Ellis Fitch, founders of Edify Content and authors of the book “Winning the Job Search: The Hard Truth About Getting Hired.” Joining me as co-host is Kelly Geary, bringing a tremendous amount of experience in the industry.
We start with a discussion about the relevance of the book amidst the unpredictable job market, especially during and post-COVID. Anthony and Ellis share their personal experiences of getting laid off and witnessing others facing similar challenges, and highlight the need for practical guidance in the job search.
This book should be included in graduation gift bags and college curriculums, according to Kelly, and I couldn’t agree more! She talks about the value of preparing emotionally and investing time in job search preparation, which can significantly impact the length and difficulty of the journey.
Ellis’s perspective in this book also adds a fresh take on job searching, particularly for women. Anthony, a self-described introvert, explains that introversion doesn’t equate to avoiding difficult conversations; it’s more about losing energy in social interactions. We talk about the tension between their viewpoints, which provides readers with a broader understanding of job search strategies and the different challenges for different types of people.
We also talk about the book’s misconceptions and the intention behind each chapter’s titles.
Join me and Kelly Geary in this enlightening conversation that challenges conventional wisdom and offers practical insights into winning the job search game.
