The Niche Movement Founder Kevin O’Connell shared the hard truth about hearing the word “no” in our blog How to Handle Rejection in Business. Now, we present you with our Go or No-Go? Job Search Checklist. Rather than listening to rejection, this checklist flips the script and grants you the power to say “no” to a new job opportunity--giving you the tools to push forward in the right direction on your professional journey.
In my 10+ years of working with, advising, and interviewing college students, the number one area where students can stand out and sound more professional upon their age and experience is being prepared to answer one of the most common questions. Though often overlooked and rarely prepared for, “Do you have any questions?” will be asked 9 times out of 10.
I have been on both sides of an interview, and throughout my time in the “real world” I have learned and confirmed that having a list of prepared questions will set you apart, especially if you are interviewing for an internship or entry level job.
This episode features our first in-person guest, Rutgers alum and entrepreneur, Vincent Velasquez! He and Kevin talk shop about the ups and downs of deciding to quit their "day jobs" and start their own businesses. Vincent provides insight, inspiration, and advice for anyone who isn't sure they are on the right path.
