According to Jobs: Tap the Experts

In Newsweek’s The Ten Commandments of Steve, Leander Kahney has reminded us that Jobs hired the best designers and marketers.  It worked for Apple.  Can it work for you?

Are you seeking help from the best?  Or your brother-in-law?  (nothing personal, sir)

Do you ask advice from an expert?  Or did someone tell you you’re just not going to make a living in your field anyway?

Who says your resume is great?  Did you visit the career center of the local community college or your state’s employment services or a certified career counselor, coach or resume writer? These are all great resources.

Who helped you pick out your interview outfit?  I hope it was the top sales person in the best store in town.

Jobhunters, think about your team of advisors.  I hope you can identify the expertise of each of them, and why they deserve to be listened to.

It worked for Jobs.  Think about it.
