When I Lost My Job, I Lost My Mojo
Liz Ryan
I said “The interesting thing about personal branding is that you will be more attractive to employers — and that’s not just you, but every job-seeker — when you know what you want. You will be more credible when you state your career intentions on your LinkedIn profile page, versus sending the message ‘I can do all kinds of things — what kind of help does your company need?'”

Randy made a powerful observation.

“What you’re saying makes sense,” he said. “As a hiring manager myself, I was most interested in candidates who are confident and have direction, too. The trouble is that when I lost my job, I lost my mojo. I don’t feel confident about myself anymore. I feel beaten up and discouraged.”
