On this episode of Creating Disney Magic, I answer two listener questions. Both about looking for or starting new jobs.
Here are some tips;
Applying for jobs online is tough. It is better to know someone. Be recommendable and have someone who can recommend you.
Use a resume as a way for people to find out who you are, not just what you have done.
My career didn’t take off until my mid-forties. By the time I had an opportunity with Disney, I was ready. Don’t be afraid to start over or make a big shift in your 30s or 40s.
One thing valuable to employers is experience, which you have after you have worked for a while.
Your greatest assets are your attitude, and what other people are saying about you.
Be flexible, volunteer for assignments, work the tough shifts, keep learning, have a great attitude, and stick out like a sore thumb. Get a reputation where people notice you and are talking about you.
