Why this podcast, and why now?

I have spent the past 20+ years or so giving out career advice and CV know how, sharing knowledge how to build a personal brand, and generally helping out as much as I can.

Why?

The world of recruitment has changed, a lot of people haven’t changed with it and getting a job is kind of important I think. I even wrote a book on it that you can find on Amazon.

(Cough)

I feel that what is needed now is a resource that will allow anyone who listens to take away advice and ideas on how to level up their career and hopefully take control of the next stage in their working lives.

I will be interviewing anyone who I feel has an interesting take on their career, initially from the Microsoft technical world and potentially moving into a broader spectrum of roles, all with a tech focus.

Regardless of technical background, what has become apparent over the years is that there are similarities between what people who move their careers forward do, and I have put them into five categories that I’ll be speaking about:

  1. Know where you are going
  2. Decide how to get there
  3. Go the extra mile to achieve this
  4. Find your tribe / people
  5. Show your experience

I’ll be seeing which of these the people I speak to have worked with, I’ll go into more detail on this during the podcast 🙂

I hope you enjoy the shows, and please do share them when you get the chance…
