A wealth of practical tips and resources
I am enjoying the journey of finding the content for my next chapter in my book of life. That is how I describe my job hunt anyway. Each day between my search, when I am running by the beach, I listen to another episode/interview on Mac’s list. My run tends to be extended as I have to stop quite a few times to write down some notes and links to resources Mac mentions during the episode. Mac is very generous in helping us learn strategies to find and land our dream job. Thank you, Mac for taking the time to do this and to all of your panel of experts too.
