What they really want…

I remember back in 2011 after my graduation from Business School, my job search was a very interesting process.  I had spent considerable resources, time and energy to train my mind to able to think outside the box, analyze complex data and be better rounded in my perception of business.  I was keen on continuing my journey in Financial Services and believed an MSc in International Business would put me in a coveted position with numerous firms knocking at my door.  They would all claim their love for my resume, respected my academic pedigree and wanted a part of my genius brain as an asset to their establishment.  It wasn’t directly so as I was faced with the reality of selling myself, negotiating and convincing others to see my worth.  One lesson I learnt from this experience and I share it with others today is your pride and your strength isn’t in your physical degree or qualification; it is in my mind, personality and skill set.  I believe this view brings balance and doesn’t overstate the external.  Like is popularly said; people are not interested in what you think, they are interested in what you know and what you can do.

I would love to hear any feedback, suggestions or stories about your own journey…
