Sometimes, we can’t help but think Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com/) is talking about us. Actually we’re pretty darn sure he is talking about us. If we were to give you an excuse, it’d be a good one. Something like our dog ate our interviewee. Seriously kids, take heed of Stan’s advice — excuses are lame. And people who do what they say they’ll do, like Stan, have blood worth bottling.
I had a flashback to my brief time teaching at RMIT this week.
Tasked with the opportunity to contribute to something amazing, a young creative came to a review session empty handed.
Too busy, apparently.
Pay attention kids, for this may be the most important piece of career advice you ever get. And it’s free!
Don’t ever, and I do mean ever, say you were too busy when you have been given something to do.
Make time. I don’t know how. Nor do I care for that matter. But if you want to get a job, or keep your job if you have one, then you need to go out of your way to impress.
And nothing impresses like a decent work ethic.Tweet
