A MANUAL FOR FINDING MEANINGFUL WORK
"I wanted to let you know that your advice on how to write a cover letter helped me out immensely during my last job hunt! Landing an interview, especially with a big company's HR department, feels like the hardest part of the job search process, and I followed your template very carefully and only had to do it once. I just accepted an offer for that illusive "dream job", at a company I'm super excited to be a part of. And on my first interview they specifically mentioned how impressed they were with my cover letter :)" - Ann
LEARN ABOUT "APPLY YOURSELF"
5 REASONS TO READ THIS BOOK
(even if you don't need a job right this minute)
IT WILL HELP YOU GET FOCUSED
Tired of applying to job after job with little-to-no response?
This is likely because your job search lacks focus.
Part 1 of APPLY YOURSELF will help you gain the clarity you need to apply the right way to the right jobs – resulting in an alignment between you and the positions you’re interested in and an increase in the number of interviews you’re invited to.
IT WILL HELP YOU DURING A CAREER CHANGE
Rather than approach a career change with a lot of self-doubt, uncertainty, stress, and anxiety, wouldn’t it be nice to approach your career change with clarity and confidence?
IT WILL HELP YOU SEARCH AND APPLY FOR JOBS THE RIGHT WAY
Not all job searches are created equal, and not all jobs can be obtained by applying in the same way.
IT WILL HELP YOU CRAFT A RESUMÉ AND COVER LETTER IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE EMPLOYER WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HELP THEMSELVES.
THEY WILL HAVE TO INVITE YOU TO INTERVIEW.
It’s true. There is a way to position yourself so that the employer is compelled emotionally to learn more about you and invite you to interview.
IT WILL HELP YOU NAIL YOUR INTERVIEW AND WILL HELP YOU NEGOTIATE A BETTER OFFER.
Would you like your next interview experience to be fun rather than intimidating?
And wouldn’t it be nice to feel like you have the upper-hand during a negotiation rather than be at the mercy of what the employer is willing to offer you.
APPLY YOURSELF will teach you how to interview with confidence, and give you the tools, insight, and strategies needed to negotiate an offer that you deserve.
I am the founder of Craft Beverage Jobs and for the last two years, I have been a jobs matchmaker! My position as a job site operator has given me unique insight into what employers are really looking for, and I am focused on helping job seekers better position themselves for the careers that they really want.
My strategies on how to get a job – including how to write a resumé and cover letter – are not typical. I incorporate some conventional wisdom into my teachings, but in general, my ideas and tips push the norm.
After years of being a job seeker myself, I “stumbled” upon a a few strategies that seemed to yield me an interview nearly anytime I applied for a job. Sooner than later, I was sharing these strategies with friends and colleagues and helping them acquire work as well. That is really the precipice of Craft Beverage Jobs – a site begging to be born as a result of helping friends and colleagues in the wine and craft beer industry.
For the last two years, I have been sharing some of my strategies and job-getting advice in the Craft Beverage Jobs blog. “Apply Yourself” is the result of members of our CBJ community asking for more. I sincerely hope that “Apply Yourself” meets your standard of more and that it truly serves those who are in need assistance finding a good job.
I look forward to working with you!
