This video could also be titled “How a 1980’s movie taught me how to find unpublished jobs”
When I was a senior in high school in 1988, I watched this 80’s movie that I mention in the video.
It inspired me, as I was from a working-class family outside NYC with parents who didn’t graduate from college. I didn’t have a leg up of getting into business from my family and had to learn how to do it myself.
I credit this movie for letting me think people like me, without connections, can get into the executive room by outsmarting people.
After getting hired three times into unpublished jobs throughout my career as a recruiter using tactics mentioned in my video that I learned from this 1980’s movie, I opened Chameleon Resumes in 2009 to teach job-seeking clients how to do this.
And our clients are landing jobs in this climate using these tactics.
