3 Key Personality Traits of a Creative Mindset

To be more creative with our work and careers, we don't need to spend a penny. We don't need to buy new equipment, hire additional staff, or make expenditures of any kind. The truth is we have all that we need to be more creative-all of us have creativity deeply ingrained in our beings. 

However, most of us have lost our sense of creativity. It was rooted out of us by schools, society, and the framework of the world's love affair with analytics. We traded creativity for what we thought was more "serious stuff." The spreadsheet logic. The love of data. The channels and rigors we create for ourselves in the analytical world are almost too strong to break. Read more here

2. A 3-hour Online Workshop by Marty Gilbert on "What the Hell Approach to Job Search"™

Many job seekers take a passive approach to their job search that includes several hours a day sitting behind their computer answering online ads. It's not real productive & that's why a "what the hell do you have to lose" approach typically creates more interest & more interviews. 

This workshop focuses on 13 WHAT THE HELL MARKETING MOVES that engage your audience. This workshop is led by NSENG Founder, Marty Gilbert. Some of his topics include:
· Where many job seekers fail in their search & why
· The "what the hell approach" & how it works
· 13 "what the hell" moves that accelerate your activity
· How to break down a job description & write effective cover letters
· Accessing the "hidden job market"
· Driving more attention to your background & connecting with key influencers.
· Proactive online & offline networking

Date: Wednesday, September 9th
