It’s always the same things: -“I hate networking.” -“I followed up on a bunch of leads and nothing!” -“I’ve got my resume out there but don’t hear anything.” -“I don’t know what to put on LinkedIn or how to use it.” Come on now! Face reality. Jobs rarely find you. They don’t call it a “search” or “hunting” for nothing. The pr...

I’m Not Here to Make Friends
by Elizabeth Freedman - Oct, 2010
“I’m not here to make friends.” More than any other phrase, the no-friends one is what you’ll hear again and again on reality TV. Check out VH1 blogger Rich Juzwiak’s amazing montage of the phrase uttered (or screamed) here – or hear his discussion of it on Act 2 of the “Frenemies” episode of This American Life on National Public Radio. “I’m not here to make friends” works well on Reality TV – but careful if you’ve got the...
