  • 317. #317) Sam Owens: How to NOT Hate Your Next Job Interview

    45:41
    Interviews. Whether you can't stand them or actually enjoy them, being good at interviews is still a crucial skill to have if you want to snag “the good jobs”.If you think you rock at interviewing, hold on a moment. Do yourself a favor and take a step back. In a survey encompassing over 2,000 responses from our own clients at Let’s Eat, Grandma, the vast majority gave themselves either a 4 or a perfect 5 out of 5 for their interviewing skills. It seems many are a bit too confident when it comes to interviews. After all, if everyone views themselves as above average, we'd end up with a lopsided bell curve. The reality is that most folks are just average at interviewing. However, for you, the career warriors gunning for the top positions, I’m calling you to be above average. So, consider this episode a moment to humble yourself and be receptive to picking up a thing or two about those interviews you may or may not hate.Today I brought on the charismatic and witty Sam Owens. Sam Owens is the founder of Sam’s Career Talk where he provides career coaching services and helps people land their dream jobs and thrive in them. He is the author of I HATE JOB INTERVIEWS, an exciting book that will be released by HarperCollins in June of 2024. He is also a chief marketing officer who has worked for three multi-billion dollar companies in the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry, and now runs marketing for Freezing Point, the makers of Frazil.ResourcesGet more help on your applications from Let’s Eat, GrandmaCheck out Sam’s Career TalkConnect with Sam on LinkedInFollow us:Use Chris' LinkedIn for the newsletterCheck us out on InstagramFollow Let's Eat, Grandma on LinkedIn

    We’ll cover how to use LinkedIn effectively, what AI is doing for job seekers today, and how to leverage contract work in your job search.Today, I brought on Reno Perry, Founder at Wiseful. With over 200,000 followers on LinkedIn, you may have already seen Reno’s inspirational writing for job seekers, or you may have even used his famous Layoff List, which has connected thousands of people impacted by layoffs. Here’s some of Reno’s background as told by himself:A first-generation college student born into a working-class family outside of Chicago, I know all too well the challenges of finding a job and navigating a professional career. I had no connections, no wealth, or "that one family friend" that could get me a job.Since then, I've sold millions of dollars in SaaS products, advised executives from start-ups to large enterprises, led teams, and worked at some cool companies like LinkedIn, Fortune 500 Stanley Black & Decker, and the #1 mobile-coaching platform, BetterUp. Now, I'm on a mission to help others realize their potential and democratize access to the best companies & jobs. I've been fortunate to help thousands of professionals land a job they love…but there's still much work to do.ResourcesGet more help on your applications from Let’s Eat, GrandmaCheck out WisefulConnect with Reno on LinkedInFollow us:Use Chris' LinkedIn for the newsletterCheck us out on InstagramFollow Let's Eat, Grandma on LinkedIn
