Don’t Use Controversial Marketing in Your Career

In the last few weeks, we have seen an interesting example of #controversialmarketing at work in the #AyeshaCurry situation. I personally didn’t find what she said so controversial or ridiculous, but apparently enough people had so much content to address her statement that it cause her to garner FREE press to announce a new cooking show she’s doing.

This type of #marketing may work for celebrities but not in the corporate professional space.

If you want to assure your #careertools are marketing you well, check out my resource here.

Focus On What You Can Control

Can you control when a company puts out an ad for an open position? You can only control how you respond to the open position. In life & your career, there are some factors that are out of your control, so don’t concentrate on that. Focus on how you represent yourself in-person and on paper with your #careertools, to get the best possible results.

Are you working towards career goals or the career your parents though was great?

Time and time again I have heard friends and co-workers talk about how they ended up going into medicine, becoming an attorney or taking over the family business all stemming from the voices of parents, relatives and friends that mean well. The only problem…YOU’RE MISERABLE! Let that sink in for a moment.

I can personally attest to this fact in my own career journey. I may have mentioned in previous podcasts or video episodes that I started my college career right out of high school in the physical therapy program. My mother thought physical therapy was a great career path and as an obedient high school graduate who had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I only knew at the time, that I wanted to help people in some way, just the how, where and in what capacity was not so clear to me at the time. I just went with my mother’s plan until I started in core science classes and laboratory work.

I discovered in those classes how much I hated working with body parts and being exposed to bodily fluids on a regular basis. I like learning about the body from a scientific perspective but touching dead frogs, cats, possums and other dead creatures gross me out. I eventually changed by major to business administration with the concentration in human resources.

This experience taught me to NEVER do something because someone else wants you to do but do it for yourself. If you’re going to work hard on a career path, at least do something that gives you some satisfaction, outside of just getting paid due to family demands.
