  • 07:45 – Creativity is the key to shining
  • 08:23 – IF you want to show people you know what you’re talking about—create content for your application, a PDF, a screencast, SOMETHING
  • 09:43 – Put yourself in the employers’ shoes—would you hire someone who just gives you a resume or would you hire someone that goes above and beyond?

3 Key Points:

  1. If it was YOUR company, would you hire someone that just sends you a resume, or would you hire someone that goes above and beyond?
  2. When you’re trying to get a job in marketing demonstrate that you’ve worked in marketing!—you need to know more than theory.
  3. Don’t rely on your resume because resumes are bullshit—find a way to stand out!
