Who Do You Think You Are? Aligning Your Character and Reputation
When you walk into an interview, you enter a competition with others whose skills, credentials and experiences are similar to yours. How do you distinguish yourself? Since many of the best employers hire on character and develop skills, how your character measures up may well determine whether you get the job. Greg McCann explains how your character can enhance or derail your career, as well as your personal life, romances and friendships. He also shows us that your character can be developed and how working on your character can make your life more management and rewarding.
