Create a Reputation Worth Talking About

create a reputation worth talking aboutOn 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.
